Graffiti Fine Arts Festival

Graffiti Fine Arts

San Paulo is also home to the graffiti biennial which highlights graffiti in a museum setting as products of fine art. The event draws in about 50 or more reputed artist from 13 countries – and growing – in order to share their art in a space that recognizes it as a form of art. The event promotes conversation as well as conversations about graffiti outside the vandalism and law-breaking models, and puts the different nations together to share their art and build a community that goes beyond ones hood or nationality. There is a point to be made about decontextualizing graffiti by celebrating it and taking the street out of it, but these are moot to the awareness the event brings and the tide changing nature of looking at graffiti in a new light.
