Sesper Solo Show — Pure Evil Gallery

'WHO AM I?' is the title of the upcoming solo show of Sesper at the Pure Evil Gallery.

Brazilian artist Alexandre 'Sesper' Cruz spent his adolescence absorbed in music and skateboarding – building ramps, making fanzines that documented the Sao Paulo art scene, and recording k-7 compilations. These interests influenced the sticker and paste up poster campaigns he launched around the city in 1999.

Sesper is best known for his unique mixed media artwork. He uses recycled material such as paper, cardboard and wood as his surface and paints over these with oil pastel and latex, incorporating layer upon layer of texture and color. A member of the renowned Brazilian art collective, the Famiglia Baglione, Sesper has participated in and filmed many of their live painting and gallery installations around Brazil.

This is the artists first UK solo show and will open on the 17th February and run until the 6th March 2011.

It would appear that the work for this show is stuck in an American UPS depot and as a result the show has been postponed until next week.
