Calma introduces the visual language of Brazilian painter and illustrator Stephan
Doitschinoff, who finds his creative cadence in the realm between authentic urban
art and rural spirituality.
The title Calma is not only Stephan Doitschinoff's alias as a graffiti writer, but also
the abbreviation of con alma (c alma) in Latin, meaning with soul . His emblematic
metaphoric imagery feeds off Afro-Brazilian folklore, pagan and alchemistic
symbolism and contemporary pop culture. Doitschinoff composes spectacular
murals and applies his extraordinary talent to emblazon houses, churches and
walls in rural cities in his South American homeland.
For the first time, Calma documents his artistic journey through these rustic areas
and presents the complete visual pandemonium of a young urban artist who creates
powerful figurative worlds. His colourful murals and black and white drawings
are a sensation internationally and have been shown in galleries and museums
around the world.
