Zezão

São Paulo, Brazil

"José Augusto Amaro Handa, a 45-year-old from São Paulo, also known as Zezão, began in the 1990s to conquer with his graffiti underground spaces in the city of São Paulo.
Inspired and motivated by the art of Jean-Michel Basquiat, Zezão felt reinforced in the impulse, with his art, to abandon the traditional ways and to cross new paths.
He went on to work on walls of sewage and stormwater galleries, between waste accumulated in abandoned houses, in deserted alleyways, and in gaps under viaducts.
In this way, it attracted the attention to unusual urban landscapes, of which many people do not even want to know.
He then expanded his artistic output by removing everyday objects from junk and scrap, reforming and assembling them differently and giving them color, thus creating a new identity.
Since then, he has used in his wooden collages broken pieces from the walls and barricades of Pauliceia.
Sometimes he also composes the work of art on precious things such as mirrors, trays, car doors, bed frames "
