EVELINE SIN / SINHÁ

Urban artist and poet Sinhá, was born in Natal – Rio Grande do Norte in 1982. In 2007 she moved to São Paulo, where, since then, she has dedicated herself with passion to street painting. Her works permeate the female universe, full of strength and feeling. In 2010, Sinhá developed a large and important project within her trajectory, “Retratos Coletivo”, in which she painted a large mural on the side of one of the buildings of the Singapore Piqueri Housing Complex, on Marginal Tietê. Within literature, after participating in some collections, Sinhá released her first poetry book entitled: “Devolva Meu Lado De Dentro, in April 2012.
The following text, “Sutis Madonnas”, written by journalist and master in Visual Arts, Oscar D'Ambrosio, unravels the artist's work.

subtle Madonnas

The visual language of Eveline Gomes, known as Sinhá in the universe of
graffiti, has as its fundamental characteristic a way that is, at the same time, critical,
beautiful and humorous to see life and to appropriate the space of the street as a
opportunity to express a feeling.
She puts, with a style differentiated by the gesture, her women in the most varied
situations, with long hair that merges into the body in a visual poetry full of
sensuality and grace, even when in a fetal position or with knees subtly
folded.
Powerful picture makes text unnecessary. It occupies the walls and streets,
in a direct conversation with the public that dispenses with intermediaries or explanations and generates
reflection because it stimulates thinking. Beauty is associated with an offer to the observer
a new look from space.
The women of Sinhá have the delicacy and mystery of a Madonna
Renaissance without losing its irreverence. This blend makes them function as icons
that seduce without losing their fragility. They contain the contradictions of a society distinguished by promising possibilities and violence never imagined.
