Artist Statement (in part):
L7m, was born in the countryside of São Paulo, in 1988, and since very early he started his relationship with art. In his childhood, he had participated of many contests and had also won many cultural awards. When 13 years old he had his first contact with the spray, which opened his eyes for new tecniques and consequently new experiences and mixtures with china ink, latex, pastel and acrylic.
Everything generates the chaos, since the mixture of outlooks and feelings to the materials and medias utilized. The revolt by the human sorrow, the beauty of life, the city’s disarray, the neglect and the surroundings, all this things transposed and influencing the works of this artist, who evolved with all his feelings focused in the street art.
