Alexandre Orion | Humor with Graffiti & Photography
Alexandre Orion, aged 27, was born in the city of Sao Paulo, Brazil. He is a photographer and artist, having graduated in Visual Arts. He has been working with graffiti and heavily involved in urban intervention since 1995. As a self-taught photographer, he became involved in the theory and practice of photography in 2001. Recently he has been looking at images composed by using both painting and photography. His work subtly but provocatively explores boundaries between languages and their capabilities for abstraction and representation from both the conceptual and formal point of view.
