Graffiti artists Galo (aka MakeOne) and Ignoto collaborate, turning a blank wall somewhere in Brazil into a street art canvas. The two artists combine their different styles in this graffiti piece to create an artwork that shows the contrast between the two artists’ imaginations and styles. While Galo tends to use bold outlines filled with solid areas of color and repetitive patterns, Ignoto’s character design is reminiscent of the styles found in graphic novels and comic books. A different world exists in each artists’ mind, evidenced by the vastly different characters that are shown here. Galo’s character is highly stylized but is still recognizable as a human being, whereas the character that emerges from Ignoto’s imagination is humanoid but definitely inhuman.
Collaborations like this one are becoming increasingly popular among graffiti artists. The result of several artists working on one piece is intriguing and offers the viewer a buffet of styles, ideas and characters to admire. This graffiti artwork may not have any apparent symbolism but it is still meaningful in that two seperate human beings joined to create one artwork, forging a relationship between art and the streets, imagination and the physical world.
