Opening night of 'SÃO PAULO' show @ Scion...

Just got back from the opening reception of the big 'SÃO PAULO' show @ Scion over in Culver City. What a turn out, the place was just packed and the artists were so jazzed, and interacting with everyone and really have an awesome time. Big props to Eduardo and Baixo from Choque Cultural and the Scion crew for an amazing show. One of their best in some time for sure.

Opening night crush with Zezão & Speto's collaborative mural looming in the background...

The explosion of color and form that is the work of Carlos Dias...

Zezão's video installation... his new work was just beautiful.

Crowd shot with Carlos Dias and Calma's work in the background...

Calma's installation complete... check out some shots of it coming together in our previous post on the show coming together here.

Calma got busy in the sketchbook (above)... finished image is below...

After Calma hit up the book, it was time for Titi Freak to do his thing. His lines flow so fluidly when he draws, just awesome to watch. Finished piece is below.
