Brazilian street artist Rodrigo Branco paints the most incredible portraits in some of the most incredible locations. Branco’s pieces typically work on a monumental scale, clambering across gargantuan façades around city streets. His painted faces seem to bring such harsh, contrasting colours and lines that breathe a new life into whatever he chooses as his canvas.
This week, Branco is bringing his street flair to the walls of Ben Oakley Gallery for a very special exhibition of unique paintings produced especially for the gallery. Typically high up on the sides of buildings, his images stare across towns and streets, bringing a smile to every viewer. This exhibition canvas work incorporates the same strong feelings as his street pieces, but Branco allows himself more time for detail that really brings the paintings to life.
We can’t wait to see what Branco has brought to Ben Oakley Gallery, and it will be very intriguing to see how the monumental scale he usually works at translates to a gallery scenario. Running from September 13th to 28th, this is not one to be missed.
