Alexandre Orion
Alexandre Orion, aged 32, was born in the city of Sao Paulo, Brazil. He is a photographer and artist, having graduated in Visual Arts. He has been working with graffiti and heavily involved in urban intervention since 1995. As a self-taught photographer, he became involved in the theory and practice of photography in 2001. Recently he has been looking at images composed by using both painting and photography. His work subtly but provocatively explores boundaries between languages and their capabilities for abstraction and representation from both the conceptual and formal point of view.

Alexandre Orion
One of his latest urban art projects, called “Pollugraphies”, is again about pollution in the urban landscape. Orion uses a self-made construction, including paper and a metal stencil, to create stencil artworks out of car-pollution, brilliant idea! Sounds a bit freaky but is in my opinion a really nice project.
For those of you who can’t imagine how “Pollugraphy” works or how the artworks look like, there is a video which explains the whole development process…

Alexandre Orion
Brazilian Alexandre Orion takes graffiti art to a whole new level when he combines it with photography. Using black latex paint, he paints interesting graffiti pieces and then photographs people as they pass by his work, just going about their daily lives. What follows is a highly creative series that magically brings graffiti alive!
