São Paulo’s Choque Cultural represents some of my favorite artists — whose work I don’t get to see often enough. Among them are Titi Freak and Daniel Melim. Here are some Titi Freak pieces I discovered on my recent visit to their space in Pinheiros:
Although I had to return to NYC before the opening of Daniel Melim’s solo exhibit, I did get to see some of his earlier pieces:

An exhibit of Daniel Melim’s newest body of work opens this afternoon and continues through August 26 :
Some of the folks (Carlos Dias, Daniel Melim, SHN, Presto and Zezão) at Choque Cultural went to Basel, Switzerland recently for a project hosted by the Brasilea Foundation. The show is up through March 10th, and the crew also got up to painting some legal walls. Here are a few of my favorites:
I’ve really been enjoying watching this beautiful installation take shape at Museu de Arte de Sao Paulo (Masp) recently. Curated by Choque Cultural, it features Titi Freak, Zezão, Stephan Doitschinoff, Ramon Martins, Carlos Dias and Daniel Melin, a list that includes some of the Brazilians I’m most excited about these days. Entitled De dentro pra fora / De fora pra dentro, the exhibit opens this Wednesday, October 18th.
These pics are off Facebook so the resolution isn’t great. Best to check out Louise and Ignacio of Lost Art’s gorgeous documentation of the work in progress.
