Street is in

Street art is in again. This new-found appreciation for the works of underground artists who work in the streets has been recently embraced by one of São Paulo’s most important museums, the MASP.

One artists who does deserve the attention is Stephan Doitschinoff. Mixing religious motives with strong colors and dozens of depictions of skulls, devils and women, his geometrical painting is at times breath-taking.

Doitschinoff's favorite subjects

The colors and irony of the paintings go perfectly well with most street walls and are really beautiful when in contrast with poor houses and abandoned areas (some of the artist’s dearest choices for canvases). What surprised me the most was the beauty of his sketches and so thinly drawn lines that create quite powerful images.

As pretty as it can be.
