What some people find ugly others find beautiful, this is what I love about art.
Ugly places, scary places can become places of sanctuary for some.
This artist has taken beauty and ugliness and mixed it together with his sweet emotion.
Zezao is one of Brazil’s most famous graffiti artists and I love the fact that he finds beauty in a place that others dare not to think about.
There is a great interview with him see below for a taste and click here for the rest

‘We walk deep into the sewer tunnels. Zezao is armed only with an aerosol can and a cigarette lighter to use as a blowtorch in case we're swarmed by cockroaches or rats. Finally he chooses a wall and gets to work. Most graffiti artists choose highly visible sites for their canvas, but for Zezao, his art is more personal than public.’
