Member of RUA, Frederico Draw uses spray cans as if they were pencils. He draws anonymous faces, portraits of random people he has met in the streets. His unique style is characterized by and unfinished trait that adds lyricism to the subject. He turns every surface into a wide sketching pad where charcoals are replaced by spray cans.
The theatrical effect of his countenances is coming from the extremely detailed gazes of his subjects, which are in contrast with the roughness of the face. Draw is also the artistic director of PUTRICA (Propostas Urbanas Temporárias de Reabilitação e Intervenção Cultural e Artística), a project that uses street art to turn empty urban sites into spaces with an artistic and cultural value.
Presented at MACRO Testaccio on 21 May – in its realization participated young architects under 35 (Sara Adesso, Andrea Swifts , Marcella Claps , Beatrice Roccetti Campagnoli and Giulia Marzocchi) , critics and curators of contemporary scene including Jessica Stewart, Mirko Pierri, Marta Leteo, Giulia Riva and Serena Ficarola. The volume also collects the contributions of institutional personalities who have supported the project: U.O. Manager Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Rome, Federica Pirani, the Ambassador of Portugal in Italy Manuel Lobo Antunes, and President of the House of Architecture Alfonso Giancotti CTS .
The graphic design is curated by Hugo Dias and Hugo Simões.
