Biography and art, auction, artworks, interview, statement, website:
Alexandre Orion, aged 32, was born in the city of Sao Paulo, Brazil. He is a photographer and artist, having graduated in Visual Arts. He has been working with graffiti and heavily involved in urban intervention since 1995. As a self-taught photographer, he became involved in the theory and practice of photography in 2001. Recently he has been looking at images composed by using both painting and photography. His work subtly but provocatively explores boundaries between languages and their capabilities for abstraction and representation from both the conceptual and formal point of view.
One of his latest urban art projects, called Pollugraphies, is again about pollution in the urban landscape. Orion uses a self-made construction, including paper and a metal stencil, to create stencil artworks out of car-pollution, brilliant idea! Sounds a bit freaky but is in my opinion a really nice project.
