Brazilian artist Alexandre Orion began as a teenage graffiti artist on the streets of Sao Paolo. Now in his late 20s, Orion experiments with combining his street art and his fascination with photography…a process he calls ‘Metabiotica’. He expresses his stencil-style art on the walls of the city and then incorporates unstaged interaction with live subjects to create a new photographic image – a process that not only gves the image humour and spontaneity but requires gargantuan patience to achieve. His urban inventions not only create something visually arresting but deftly capture moments of suspense, terror, joy & plain surreality.
The internet high-end webshop 20ltd is now offering a couple of Alexandre Orions photographies together with other fine art photography from Chris Anthony, Astrid Korntheuer and Matt Siber to mention a few.
