“Carlos Eduardo Doy, a.k.a. SOSEK, is an artist from São Paulo, where he lives and works. He started his artistic path very young through graffiti, lately being in contact also with Graphic Design and Illustration.
SOSEK says that his strongest influences are the pixação culture, japanese culture and the city of São Paulo, besides the creative atmosphere that comes from the proximity with friends who are also a part of the artistic universe. (more…)
Name: RELFY and SLATE.
Crew: SOX, HRT, COM, SC, OSB, ESQ
Location: Vic, Canada
Active since: 1998
Favorite surface: I enjoy painting on various types of painted metal. Anything that is smooth is nice. Spray always looks good on rusty freights. Vibrant colors also look nice on raw concrete.
Personal motivation: Evolving/studying/learning never stops for me, this is motivating. The idea I can keep growing and try new things and branching into different styles and using different color schemes and incorporate more influences from outside graffiti into my work is exciting. I want to surprise myself always to try and out do myself and keep refining my style. (more…)
The Latidoamericano street art festival has made it to the streets of Asunción, Paraguay with its 2016 edition. 40 artists from over 10 countries (9 of them are locals) met together in Asuncion’s historic downtown to perform multiple activities.

For the nostalgic types we’re recommending an interview that tastes like a nice aged wine. The Dutch graffiti writer, Inca, (don’t confuse him with the Spanish Inca) has credentials that go way back to the year 1988. His long winded trajectory is apparent when you see his exquisite current style, his impeccable digital sketches, and some older pieces that are also featured in a light-hearted article by Spraybeast.
Scien and Klor came back to paint the characteristic “L” shaped mural at the Under Pressure festival in Montreal.

We also brought you a selection photos taken from the Instagram accounts of each participant of the events mural.
