ABOUT THE ARTIST
Mag Magrela was born in Sao Paulo in 1985 and is one of Brazil’s leading street artists. She grew up in the neighborhood of Vila Madalena, the center of creativity in Sao Paulo and has been painting since 2007.
Representing the style of Brazilian graffiti, Mag’s artistic expression goes beyond the walls, reaching canvases, performance, clay sculpture, assemblages, embroidery, and tiles.
Her studio works are extensions of the artist’s street works. “I came from the street walls to canvas, and the two are equally important to me. This is how I feel complete,” says Mag.
She finds inspiration in the complex urban sprawl and works around themes that portray the mix of Brazilian culture. Mag’s art expresses pain, suffering, the struggles of living in society, obstacles of daily life, and feelings deep in our souls.
Her work has been shown in The Huffington Post, StreetArtNews and Street Art NYC, to name a few. Also, she is part of a feature-length documentary called ‘Street Heroines’ on female graffiti artists.
