Q: Hello and welcome to the PXLeyes community. Please tell us a few things about who Cranio is. A: My name is Fabio, a.k.a. Cranio (www.flickr.com/cranioartes), and I am from São Paulo, Brazil. I’m 28 and I do graffiti since 1998. That’s how I developed my artistic skills.
Q: Street art is an interesting passion, please tell us a few things about that. A: Street art is fascinating, especially the graffiti part, which is the strongest point of my work, it’s what I most like to do, I always drew on paper though, even canvas and panels. Now I took a step forward and I’m even making some sculptures.
Q: Do you have other passions related to art? A: I also love to skate, I like film, music and the art of circus. Last but not least, indigenous art.
Q: Do you prefer traditional or moder art? Why? A: I like art in general, modern or traditional, all are part of the story.
Q: Do you plan on making an exhibition of your paintings? A: I have had some exhibitions here in Brazil before, and the next one will be in October.
Q: Street artists are usually left in the dark, they rarely get popular, even if some are very talented. Do you sign or promote your work in any way? A: Paint on the street is the biggest promotion of my work. The street is my window to the world.
Q: How do you pick your locations? Do you need special walls for the grafitti or just any wall will do? A: The location is random, but the texture and the conditions of the place much influence.
Q: What kind of materials do you use? A: I mostly use sprays, latex paint, brushes and paint rollers.
Q: What advice would you give for the people out there just starting out in the fantastic world of graffiti and art in general? A: Study and practice a lot. The art is free and the world is ours.
