Emol: The Streets of Brazil
Street Art has blown up in Los Angeles as we’ve seen but just because you took a graphic design class in high school doesn’t mean you should go out and wheat paste the city with your “work”. The description is clear, art that is out on the street. I heard of Emol via word of mouth from a friend well versed in the art scene. When I saw Emol’s paintings I was immediately effected on an emotional level. The color and patterns in his work give me the feeling of nostalgia, it speaks of vibrance and youth. The technical ability though, is not rudimentary by any means and I find poetry in that paradox. Emol was kind enough speak with us, language barriers aside he is eloquent and definitely and interesting citizen.
Working with 1DayBanner on samba schools, painting banners for football fans firm and my proximity to Hip Hop is what I cite as my initial art schools. This and my self criticism led me to the style and technique that I have today
I don´t attended university, but I already attended workshops that interest me.
Today, the project Rolê Brazil (live in places uncertain by time indefinitely for arts research and experiment) has also been a school for me because I know many artists and regional cultural events that directly affect my thinking and doing art.
Almost always the wall should guide I paint, but it is connected with designs I have in my mind. I very draw on paper and this really helps to have new ideas when I see a wall that attracts me.
There are different reactions to afraid. In some cases it is attractive. In other cases the fear appears only after the action has been performed.
I am very afraid of heights, but these paintings are a mission. With or without height and I determine that I will do.
We’re old friends, and commitment to produce art that also helps to bring us closer. This recent mural are a project of Cena7 and Melim, I was invited by them.
Each work is a different story.
I had only 4 days to think and paint the mural. So I had no time to think a poetic relationship with his art work, but the whole layout of my painting was thought from where this sculpture was and how it would relate visually with the work.
Almost always I’ll be taking creatures of the imagination. Mainly creatures that emerge spontaneously in free drawings I do. Are rare times that I use natural animals as references.
With the next Summer Olympics to be held in Rio in 2016, do you have any idea if you might be able to create some work for the city in regard to them hosting the Olympics?Is that something you would be interested in?
I want do a mural in Los Angeles. I am looking for a partner for it.
Though he is categorized as a street artist he is has done gallery shows as well as noted in the interview.
We should certainly support Emol and if there is anything you can do to get him to Los Angeles, I beseech you to contact us.
