Brazilian collective Bicicleta Sem Freio recently stopped by Turin, Italy where they spent a few days working with us on “Providence”, their new limited edition hand-pulled screen-print for Mission To Art.
This lovely edition was produced as part of the “JustKids EuroTour” organized by JustKids. The tour took the Brazilian artists across Europe to produce murals in Italy, UK and Germany.
The Mission To Art project brings an eclectic line-up of painters to the city of Turin to work on various murals and produce an exclusive print, the proceeds of which are then used to fund this unique artistic program.
Since a year, all eyes are pointing towards the Brazilian design and illustration collective Bicicleta Sem Freio (Bicycle Without Brakes) which was founded in Brazil, in 2005 by graphic designers Douglas Castro, Victor Rocha and Renato Reno. The initial idea behind the new project was simply to have fun and create whatever inspired them, which at the beginning were mostly posters for rock concerts.
They became internationally famous for their large-scale public artworks, typified by highly-expressive line work and bold color palettes. Drawing a lot of female characters, they often produce surreal and psychedelic temptresses with the unavoidable rock’n’roll iconography.
“Providence” is an edition of 35, it measures 50 x 70cm, 8 layer hand pulled screen print on Hahnemuhle 350gsm paper. The print comes signed and numbered by Bicicleta Sem Freio.
The print will be exclusively available in our store on Thursday October 16th at 6PM BST for £120 each.
