Weekend link-o-rama

Had a fantastic time in New York last weekend finishing up The Art of Comedy, but that meant missing out on a lot of news, so some of this week’s link-o-rama is a bit more dated than usual:

Vitché: One of Brazil’s (And The World’s) Best

During our prep for the show the other day, I noticed Nina and Thiago (her awesome assistant) watching a video interview with their friend, Vitché (Nina’s known him for seventeen years!) Vitché’s work epitomizes what I love about graffiti and street art, Brazilian or otherwise; it blends raw power, beauty and brilliance into urban and natural environments with total ease. Without any hint of egotism, his pieces simply feel like they were meant to be there. The video below is in Portuguese, but it shows the essential things you need to know about Vitché, including many of his great murals and sculptures. His magical personality really comes across, too.
