“INFAME” - Paulo Ito

Galeria A7MA presents “Infame”, the second solo exhibition by artist Paulo Ito, which opens on Thursday, November 28, 2019 from 5 pm.

Two years after the exhibition “Inconveniente” the artist returns to A7MA with “Infame”. As a continuation of the first, the new 10 works resume Ito's sarcastic vein that defines his peculiar mood: “I would say that we can laugh at the content I produce, except for those who will take it as an offense. But there is nothing to worry about, because the cap only serves those who owe in the registry office, at least according to my ruler, lol. However, whether it is funny or not, there is still a refuge in the comfort of not with me! "

Paulo Ito was born in 1978 in São Paulo and started painting in public spaces in 1997 and today he works mainly in the west of the city. In 2011 he published the independent comic strip Mais Barato Free, which totaled more than 5,000 copies distributed free of charge. In 2012, he participated in the São Paulo Mon Amour exhibition at MuBE and in 2013 he exhibited at the second International Graffiti Biennial of São Paulo at the same museum. In 2014 he painted a panel that became the biggest viral in the FIFA world cup, appearing in media outlets in more than 20 countries reaching millions of people worldwide. He also painted iconic gables in São Paulo such as Greenpeace's “Save the Tapajós” project in 2016 and the mural against excessive alcohol consumption in 2018. He exhibited at the Second Moscow International Street Art Biennial in 2016, he participated in 2017 in the Festival Memorie Urbane in Gaeta, Italy, exhibiting at Street Art Place with Apollo Torres and in 2019 won the Bunge Institute award in the street art category.

He made large murals with the artists Enivo and Quinho at Sesc Santana and a panel in the city of Cali, Colombia. He also did the art direction for the short animation that will be released soon called Subolo by Otto Drawings.

The new exhibition aims to propagate Paulo Ito's reflections and revolts, creating dialogues that make the observer reflect and rethink about society and its policies.
