Fabio de Oliveira Parnaiba, aka Cranio (“Skull” in English) is an Urban Contemporary Artist from Sao Paolo, Brazil.
Zezão, real name José Augusto Amaro Handa, began his quest to conquer the underworld with graffiti in São Paulo in the 90s. Inspired and motivated by the art of Jean-Michel Basquiat, Zezão believed it his right to depart from the well-trodden paths with his art and to explore new avenues. He worked in sewerage systems, in drains, in the rubble of abandoned ruined buildings, in dilapidated blind alleys and dark spaces below viaducts, and so drew attention to a cityscape
whose existence many people could barely credit.
Hamilton Yokota (aka Titi Freak) born in 1974 in São Paulo, Brazil, he has Japanese ancestry. Titi Freak first began writing graffiti in 1995 on the streets of São Paulo, Brazil. His style fuses Eastern and Western cultures, with fashion, pop imagery, illustration, graffiti and comic influences. He has created illustration work for many international ad agencies and several worldwide brands. He has also painted in the streets of cities around the world, and his fine art has been exhibited in
galleries throughout Asia, South America and Europe.
