“TTSSS*… pixação*, the vastest art. são paulo, brazil”

Organization Boleta (Daniel Medeiros)

http://www.editoradobispo.com.br

Extracting “notes”, from the “historical” diary from a pixador* – was how this book came to existence. Boleta, who put together this volume, is a member of the first generation of VÍCIO*, one of the oldest and most active graphic-manifestation gangs in São Paulo. The diary dates from 1988 to 1998. These personal notes are a testimonial of how pixo* gradually came to life in São Paulo.

We have reproduced pages of this collection of autographs either in their totality or in detail. The photos were the next step. The book’s photographic work reveals how “Pixographics” defines the chaotic mood of the city, yet allowing us to see through the chaos, where beauty lays - multiplying in extension and height – all over the city. Editora do Bispo sees a genuine, contemporary, 21st century form of communication in Pixação*, where a gifted and original graphic creation emerges. This is the first time that their alphabet has been decoded and organized in a book. These symbols, if seen detached from their context, reveal original and sophisticated graphic creations.

Ttsss... does not intend to be an encyclopedia of graphic art. It is, however, the editorial introduction to Pixo. Ttsss… is an important compilation that shows a specific stream of young artists - artists who predominantly come from an underprivileged social segment. Their social condition is, nonetheless, the ingredient that makes their symbolograms one of the most original urban phenomenons in Brazil in recent years.

* TTSSS…. is the buzzing sound of a can of spray paint

*Vício: addict

*Pixadores. A youngster, generally from an underprivileged social background, frequently living under precarious conditions in the outskirts of the city. A pixador uses pixação a form of protest, but at the same time, as a way of expressing his esthetic impulse.

* Pixação.noun. Of Brazilian origin, refers to writing in own, original codes, signs, symbols, and printing types. The hieroglyphics are printed with spray paint along extensions of walls, façades, and building exteriors in great metropolitan capitals. São Paulo, city where the movement originated, has the richest ex hibition of this kind in the world. The origin of the word comes from piche – tar, pitch.

On Tristan Manco's book (graffiti brasil) we had a large panorama of graffiti in Brasil. This timeTtsss is a book fully devoted to Pixaçào in Sào Paulo, Brasil.
Pixaçào refers to writing original signs, symbols and printing types on walls, building exteriors etc.

There are many great pictures in this book, and also many extracts from Pixadores black-book which is a true great idea, there is also a full alphabet with many way to write Pixaçào. We can easily suppose that those pages will quickly became the reference for many people who wants to give a Brasilian style to their tag.

What is a bit disapointing about this book, is that there are not as much texts as we could expect.Pixadores interviews would have be welcome, or a kind of history of this movement. Origins are not really explained.
We -nervetheless- learn that Pixadores are mainly young people from underprivileged social background. They paint as a form of protest, to show they exist and of course to show their incredible hieroglyphic style. We also learn that painting is a very risky business in cities like Sao Paulo and that pixadores are hated by most people in Brasil.

Image

Image

As a conclusion this book is very interesting for people who are truly interested in tags, calligraphy and Brasil.
