Fabio Oliveira AKA Cranio (Skull) grew up in Sao Paulo, Brazil. @ 16, Cranio started to “tattoo” the walls of his city.
His humoristic work lures the observer and hopefully makes him/her think about contemporary issues like consumerism, identity, corruption and environment.
Cranio is inspired by cartoons and Salvador Dali. A British collector says “Cranio has developed a unique and significant group of characters who do not are only vibrating, but also please to be seen. Furthermore, the images created by him always pass a message of important concepts we often forget in our lives. These set of qualities is what makes his art excellent to appreciate and great to think and philosophize.”
Our Brazilian artist has been working hard while in London from small pieces to large elaborate murals, his bright blue rainforest Indians have been partying across a multitude of surfaces in town.
He also has been busy in the studio working on a very limited series of heavily hand painted prints. They are some of the most exciting pieces that Cranio has given the chance to show all together, for one night only before they go back to their new owners.
Come and join in celebrating Cranio's Brazilian art as his time in London draws to an end and he heads off on a European invasion, second stop: Bella Barcelona.
