AWÁ GUAJÁ - BRASIL

The Awa indigenous tribe lives in the Amazon Rainforest in the Brazilian state of Maranhão, divided into four villages: Awa, Tiracambú, Juriti and Guajá. A total of 400 people living as close as possible to the purity of its origins. The hunting days are long, but do not spare anyone: today, children and women also head the expedition through the dense forest. Here there is no certain age (the last of these families was discovered less than ten years ago), only the day-to-day survival.

The help of the institutions responsible for its preservation leads to the community a few words in Portuguese, urban clothing and rare utensils for easy daily life. But the goal is to be an arm more in the fight against the increasing encroachment of loggers in search of the most precious of the Amazon forest, the trees that give it the surname: The Lung of the Earth.





















THE IRON TRAIN

The Iron Train is one of the longest train in the world, the train is about 2.5 km. A journey that goes from Nouadhibouh to Zouerate (Mauritania), totaling 652 km in the middle of the Sahara desert that lasts about 20 hours. An epic journey where residents, poor and penniless use dangerous train to visit relatives in the homeland or carrying goods such as live animals. High temperatures during the day and very low temperatures during the night makes the journey is not easy. But the worst is the dust that is produced by wagons full of iron minerals that come from a mine 30km Zouarate to be unloaded cargo boats in the port of Nouadhibouh.













RRAPA DAS BESTAAS 

The Wild Magic

Throughout Galicia, in northern Spain, is fulfilled the annual ritual of cutting the tails of wild horses that live free in the mountains. But is in the village of Sabucedo that the tradition of "Rapa das Bestas" gains strength as international event with the attendance, every summer, of hundreds of fans and curious of this "magic party".
The origins of the initiative ride until the sixteenth century, even if the uncertainty about their religiosity dissipates between legends, stories of bravery and the delivery of beasts to St. Lawrence for protecting villages against the plague.
After the prayers, "Rapa das Bestas" includes an incursion by the hills to join the wild horses together and the fight that puts men - and women – and animals to measure forces indoors the Curro, that at all resembles a gladiatorial arena. The goal is to let the horses immobilized on the ground for them tails and manes to be cut. Similarities with the handle of bulls in Spanish lands will not be just a coincidence.
Although there are groups against holding of this tradition, against the struggle between wild horses, against the abusive cutting of their tails and manes, the "party" continues, maintaining belief in a ritual that celebrates the strength of the inhabitants of Sabucedo to, for centuries, protect their animals against men, wolves and fireworks.S BESTAS

IZOLAG - GRAFFITI - BRASIL



Com publicações em livros, revistas, entre outros, o trabalho de  Izolag está presente em galerias e coleções pelo mundo, apresentando técnicas e estilos diversificados.
Izolag já teve exposições no Brasil, Alemanha, Holanda, Estados Unidos, Bélgica e  Austrália , estando em coleções particulares desde 2006, alguns colecionadores possuem até 15 obras do artista.
Izolag também esteve na primeira e segunda edições da Bienal Internacional de Graffiti Fine Art da MuBE, em São Paulo, em 2010 e 2013, respectivamente. Também em 2013, o artista foi convidado pela ONU a participar da exposição Encontro das Áfricas - ONU (Organização das Nações Unidas), no Rio de Janeiro.
Izolag atua a longo tempo, na área de identidade visual, capas de disco, palcos, e murais, já fez projetos com grandes nomes como NIKE, APPLE entre outros.
Izolag nasceu no Rio e se interessou por desenho e pintura ainda criança, na Bahia, onde passou a infância e adolescência. Em Salvador, cursou artes plásticas e aprofundou as pesquisas em graffiti, stencil, poster e caligrafia, tornando-se peça fundamental da técnica stencil. Ficou conhecido pela utilização da técnica em grandes proporções e com diversas camadas de cores, criando uma ilusão mais realista das imagens. É um dos pioneiros no Brasil. Em 2013, inventou uma nova técnica de stencil com linhas em ângulos. Além o artista é conhecido por destruir suas gravura após uma única utilização, e em 2014, construiu o maior stencil do mundo, a maior gravura já feita na história, no centro do Rio de Janeiro.
Style Lines” a série mais recente do artista que submerge a imagem na escuridão através de linhas de cor, é a prova de que Izolag sempre se reinventa com o tempo.

Born in Rio de Janeiro in 1983, moved at age 7 in Southern Bahia Itacaré. In 2003 he was studying fine arts in Salvador at the Federal University of Bahia, in 2004 began to define his own style and enhance the use of the Stencil technique, (which itself is a major reference on the subject, and collectors ranging from abandoned houses, European prisons, corporations and various galleries spread across the world.)
During the course of Fine Arts, Izolag began painting murals on the streets of Salvador, but soon turned his production to the development of the Stencil technique, one of the oldest techniques of engraving, used for thousands of years. At this time, Izolag stood out with the development of Stencil with multiple colors, because it was not common to see this kind of work in Brazil and worldwide.



Old papers, leather, wood, canvas, brushes, markers, carcasses from different sources, a lot of ink and various techniques that go far beyond the stencil's multicolored, these are mostly the raw material used by the artist to achieve their goals and makes full success, blending past, present and future, beyond the themes that portray social commitment informative his paintings have strong influences from music, portrayed not only by, but also the atmosphere that this refers to the movement of the music, rhythms and forms.

Izolag continue adding innovative aspects in his work, blending techniques with his own style, a real human work and where the concept is explicit to the observer, finding the use of the old and new techniques, which merges the digital and manual process.
