This beautiful piece is the work of Brazilian street artist Tinho who is currently taking part of the Street Art Brazil exhibition at Schrin Kunsthalle in Frankfurt which counts with the participation of renowned artists such as Tinho himself, Herbert Baglione, Fefe Talavera, Onesto and many more.
Credited as being one of the pioneers of Brazilian graffiti creates Tinho hunting images inspired by his punk and skate culture background and his natural awareness, always focusing on human nature. His characters are both vulnerable and strong in spirit and his tableaux bring social issues, dreams and abstract ideas.
This new piece shows the image of two “enlightened” kids, each of them resting or standing on a large pile of books. At their feet and on the surrounding windows we see something that like colourful fabrics covering the space. A wonderful sight.
