The term 'Portuñol', used to describe the Portuguese-and-Spanish mashup in which Brazil and the rest of Latin America often communicate, works along the same lines as Franglais and Spanglish – with the major difference that these two languages have an awful lot in common. Enter A7MA's latest exhibition, 'Portuñol' – a bilingual dialogue, via their respective works in the universal language of street art, between the Chilean artist Daniel Marcelli and the Brazilian artist Thiago Goms.

Despite the artists' different upbringings and languages – Marcelli was raised in the distinct Chiloé archipelago off the coast of Chile, while Goms was brought up in the Southern Zone of São Paulo – the joint show highlights the contrasts between their hometowns through their zoomorphic paintings, illustrations and sculptures, all of which depict the at-times animalistic behaviour of humans through the use of mythological creatures.
