Just like here in NYC, there appears to be some friction between street artists and graffiti writers in Sao Paulo, Brazil. But instead of just going over their work in the street, a crew of vandals took things straight to the gallery:
“Last week a group of 30 Pixadores stormed the Choque Cultural Gallery in protest against the “marketing, institutionalization and domestication of Street Art” by the galleries and media.”
While some might deride this type of action and even go so far as apologizing for posting a legitimate news item, others understand that the very thing that fuels graffiti and sets it apart from virtually every other art form out there is chaos. And even if you don’t like, best respect it. More images of South American Dada in action.
