Untitled (2009) Onio
In the summer of 2009, the Caramundo Foundation organized the RUA festival. RUA stands for Reflexo on Urban Art. Caramundo invited ten Brazilian graffiti artists to create enormous murals in the public space of Rotterdam, so that urban and contemporary Brazilian art is displayed alongside the institutionalized art of museums and galleries. One of the participants was the Brazilian Onio, who applied this black and white mural close to the Pauluskerk.
Onio (Brazil, 1980) has been interested in graffiti since he was 13 and became one of the first graffiti artists in the Brazilian capital Brasilia. His colorful abstract drawings represent urban chaos. He is a visual artist, illustrator and graffiti artist. For RUA Rotterdam in 2009 he made a number of works in Rotterdam.
