Maxwell Colette Gallery Presents: “Equilibrio” Rodrigo Level and Gabriel Kieling (Chicago, IL)

Equilibrio

Brazil’s vibrant street art scene has been producing compelling work both in the streets and in the galleries for years. The current wave of social and political unrest that the country has been experiencing seems to have emboldened those who would utilize the streets as a canvas and magnified the timeliness of their actionsTwo Brazilian artists we’ve been watching thrive amid this chaos are Rodrigo Level and Gabriel Kieling. These artists share more than the primarily black and white palette of Brazilian Cordel Art, they both pass freely between the street and the gallery scene without compromising their style or the depth of their messaging.

We’re still reeling a bit from the debate Wednesday night where Mittens threatened to have Big Bird for Thanksgiving dinner and that makes us think of Saber’s skywriting campaign to #DefendTheArts.

Stormie Mills in Melbourne
