You Need to See This Awesome SãO Paulo Street Art.

Deco Farkas a.k.a Treco began painting in the streets of São Paulo six years ago. He has lived in the city all his life but street art allows him to access new, interesting and inspiring subjects, and in a sense to travel within the city. He cycles to his locations, piling his equipment onto the bike's carrier. It is a way of exchanging with the city, attaining something new and unexpected. Using spray paint or acrylic, Treco contributes with playful, thoughtful and rather surreal artistic interventions.

Turbans, British Fashion and 21st Century London Life.

Sara Shamsavari’s Dastaar: Fitting In and Standing Out exists to highlight this generation of male and female Sikhs as individuals who contribute to the richness of British society. They exemplify the idea becoming part of society whilst remaining visibly Sikh as they wear turban. Yet their style reflects Sikh culture, British culture and an array of popular cultural influences.

The project aims to emphasise the complexity of identity in a cosmopolitan city like London where cultures influence each other and like Shamsavari's previous projects Dastaar is inspired by the idea of transforming prejudice and misunderstanding in to something new and beautiful.
