"Graffix" follows the movement of Brazilian art from beyond the confines
of accepted exhibition spaces, such as art galleries, into the streets.
Numerous artists living in Sao Paulo, Brazil's largest industrial city,
have taken it upon themselves to combat the
stifling greyness of their surroundings through
the art of graffiti. With spray can in hand, they are
working to create a viable living space.
"Graffix" shows not only their work,
but the political dimensions of a struggle
to oppose the inhumanity of their urban environment.
