Puerto Rican street artist Alexis Diaz (covered here) recently teamed up with Chilean artist INTI
to create a new mural for O.Bra Festival in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Their
mural, which took over 1 week to complete, blends the two artist’s
distinct imagery: Diaz’s detailed and crosshatched line work with
colorful under layers, and INTI’s subjects inspired by life, death and
religion, particularly Christianity. It features a surreal split-image
of a skeletal robed woman, crowned with flowers and holding up a
Street artist - INTI, born in Valparaíso, Chile takes his name from the Incan sun god and the Quechua word for ‘the Sun’ as homage to his Chilean roots.
His colossal murals pulse with the bright colours of a Latin carnival and the mysterious energy of Ancient South American culture. However, his work still remains fine, controlled and technically dazzling. With a warm orange glow, the murals often contain themes of life, death, ancient religion and Christianity, all drawn together with one or two strange characters.
Although the strong sense of Latin culture can be felt with INTI’s paintings, he has become an ambassador of South American street art worldwide. via Street Art Bio
