feature: the ‘interveções humanas’ and ‘vista-me’ photography/ body graffiti projects by baobá-brasil

December 14, 2015

Check out these two artivism projects from Brazilian Indie fashion brand Baobá-Brasil – entitled ‘Interveções Humanas’ and ‘Vista-Me’. The first project (translated as “Human interventions”) was an invitation to people at a meeting held in Sao Paulo, during Brazil’s month of Black Consciousness, to stamp on their skin words that express personal and social issues. Body graffiti was painted by Ynara Pollux and Nabor Junior, and then captured by photographer Natasha Fernandez. The second aforementioned project (“Wear Me’) was the inspiration behind the first – lensed by Rachel Barros, with body art by Rafa Mon. Take a look below.
