This October, invited by the founders of Instagrafite and supported by Urban Nation the duo HERAKUT had the chance to visit Brasil for the first time and paint a mural in Downtown of São Paolo. The city is home of many renowned street artists, and its size was just as intimidating as we expected, while its buzzling life was just as inspiring as we hoped it would be. We were asked by the O.BRA Festival to invite a collaboration partner, so we were looking for someone who would bring an interesting contrast to Herakut´s style. M-city, who we first met in 2007 at Nuart in Stavanger, Norway, became their partner. His stencils stretch over several meters, and he was fearless working in extreme heights of 45-50 meters.
“Nobody is too small to matter. So, help me to do the best I can, where I am, with what I have.” (Portugues: “Ninguém é tão pequeno que não possa ser importante. Então, me ajude a fazor o melhor que eu posso, aonde eu estou, com o que eu tenho.”)
