Photographic project reflects on the PIXO of São Paulo.
As Mano Brown ('Racionais') once sang, "who is not seen is remembered". The need to occupy public space and leave your mark for the city does not come from today. Neither does contesting its historic and artistic value. Being the main form of expression of the pleb, the PIXO began in the Roman Empire and from that time was not only discriminated against, but also repressed.
Within this controversial context, Fellipe Lopes, engaged in audiovisual artistic productions, created [CentrøPixø], a photographic series that proposes an analytical view of PIXO.
On his travels around the city, by foot or by bike, he photographed the daily life of people, focusing on the presence of PIXO as the background of their lives.
The exhibition [CentrøPixø] raises the discussion about the predominant presence of PIXO in the center of São Paulo and how it disappears from other more elitist areas of the city. "I started by the old town and began to walk. Shortly before arriving in Paulista Avenue, the PIXO started to disappear. And in the most famous avenue of the whole PIXO is no longer present."
"The Pixo is there: resisting, on the way to work, on the road, every day, every time and everywhere. It often goes unnoticed, but it is part of the 'background' in São Paulo's Babylon, reflecting the chaos of an unjust society," The overall intention of this project is to show that the Pixo is the background of this city, it is in several places, every day in people's lives.
The PIXO is a practice that can be considered by many people as expressive writing. It began as, and continues to be, a gratuitous and subversive expression that breaks certain social values of the ruling class.
The PIXIO is already an organic part of the urban landscape, and its existence can be considered a spatial interference, characteristic of a city like São Paulo.

A imersão em busca das origens. Depois de 5 horas de carro e 9 horas de barco cheguei na Aldeia Indigena Yawanawa para apreciar o Festival Yawa, e conhecer de perto a cultura indígena e todo seu universo de detalhes e mistérios. Intensidade, verdade e cultura define o povo Yawanawa.
Gratidão. Dias que ficarão para todo o sempre!
