Last time I hear from Brazilian artist Frederico Franco, also known as Fredone, was in November last year under his participation at the Concreto Festival in Fortaleza, Brazil.
Also in Brazil, but this time in the city of Espirito Santo, Fredone created a few weeks ago this commissioned mural installation for Florense featuring his signature style based in balanced abstract compositions and colour palette of red, black, white and greys.
Born and raised in one of Brazil’s many suburbs, Fredone Fone, is a self-taught artist that started an early career as a builder assisting his father for almost ten years. This experience served as inspiration for his later artistic work based on simple geometric shapes inserted in abstract compositions.
Founder and editor of Urbanite. Street Art lover who after the finishing her MA thesis on the muralist movement in the 1920-50s, developed a fascination for street art and graffiti that eventually led to collaborations with different art blogs, including the creation of this one.
