1AM is pleased to announce that we will be showing the internationally acclaimed street artist Eduardo Kobra. The show will be opening December (stay tuned for opening date!). As he is a world-renowned mural artist, chances are you’ve heard of Kobra or seen his work before. But just in case you haven’t, here’s a little tidbit about the São Paulo-based artist. Eduardo and his crew, Studio Kobra, travel the world designing and producing vibrant large-scale murals that reflect the history of the city they represent. The historical images in his murals are sourced from vintage photos which Eduardo finds in the local library archives. With each mural Eduardo aims to “recreate a city that no longer exists, so people who didn’t live in that time can see it and those who did live back then can have a moment of memory or nostalgia.” – Quote by Eduardo Kobra during an interview on Artmiami.tv.
Check out some of his work below. And if that’s not enough, you can find more on his Flickr page.
