Cripta Djan

(Brazil, 1984)

Cripta Djan is an exponent of the Brazilian Pixação movement. His mission is to educate the public about the meaning of ‘pixo’ through his art. In this piece, he writes: “Pixo é o mudo das periferias de Sampa” (“Pixo is the mute on the periphery of São Paulo”) - meaning that Pixo is a silent scream, which shouts through its forms.

“Pixo on the streets is seen with prejudice, but when it is within an exhibition space we open up a dialogue with the viewer.” / Cripta Djan
