Tom Zé has always being one of my favourites Brazilian composers.. I spent half of my life listening to his songs. He was one of the founders of the tropicalia movement, with Caetano Veloso, Torquato Neto, Gilberto Gil, etc.. A couple of months ago, I received this surprising call from a friend that is a art director, Richard Vignais, saying:"Hey Villas, how would you like to make an art for the cover of Tom Zé´s new album?"
You can imagine how stoned I got.. The project worked out pretty smooth, Tom Zé loved the painting I did and that was probably ...
This year was a really "baby boom" in my little circle of friends... I got really touched more than one time when I had this nice surprise hearing that a big friend was becoming a father/mother... That really inspired me in a production of a serie of graffiti attacks called "my little playground", that is all about kids playing arround.
Those are some photos of my last one as my christmas card so whe can share this love with all the childrens of our lives and for the children that whe have inside as well...:)
I´m very happy to invite all my friends to comme to the Caixa Forum Museum this saturday for the screening of my documentary video about graffiti at one of Rio´s favelas.
It will take place at Caixa Forum - Avinguda Marquês de Comillas, 6 - Aula 2 - 19hs - Barcelona
