If you’re an artist working in the streets, they are so much more than a simple location for your art. Streets become your window to the world, a way to communicate with the others, to tell a story about yourself and that you deem is important enough. Fabio de Oliveira Parnaiba, better known as Cranio, is a Brazilian artist who began his artistic journey on the streets of Sao Paolo. In addition to the beautifying his home city, and many cities throughout the world, he also started painting. The blue Indian characters have become his trademark. It all started as his desire to show the indigenous people from Brazil and all the troubles they’re facing in the unforgiving contemporary world, but the process has outgrown its original idea, and the characters and the situations they’re finding themselves in are now almost universally applicable.
