Cranio is a self taught artist, who learned his craft from the streets of Sao Paolo – a city with a strong culture of graffiti. Cranio’s work is a mix of street art and fine art, where he depicts his own life, everything he sees, hears, or lives through.
He takes pleasure in critiquing what he defines as ‘wrong’ or ‘un-just’ through his art, using his illustrious character of an indigenous person of Brazil to convey his message. His character was developed from the intention of representing the indigenous peoples who have populated his native country. Using this character, Cranio aims to prompt thoughts of more contemporary issues such as consumerism, corruption, and the environment, generating a fusion between aesthetic fruition and critical reflection.
