We are really proud to present the work of Binho Ribeiro, Tinho, Ananda Nahu, Milo Tchais & SHN – all of them have been around the world sharing their art and will now come to London to paint the walls around the Red Gallery, and to run workshops for people for all ages to learn some new techniques in partnership

MEET OUR ARTISTS
Binho Ribeiro, has been a major part of the street art scene since 1984 and is now a pioneer in Brazil. He has travelled the world painting, becoming a reference of Brazilian street art who influences and mentors many new artists. He has painted in and been exhibited around the world, from Beijing to Beirut, Buenos Aires and Cape Town, to name a few, as well as throughout Brazil. He has taken part at Graffiti Fine Art in USA and Brasil, and International Biennial GFA, already on the 3rd edition. The launch of his book, “Binho – The International Graffiti Ambassador” by Over the Edge Books, was released in late 2015. Binho’s studio in São Paulo also sells his street wear brand 3º Mundo (3rd World), created out of his passion for hip hop and skateboard. http://www.binhoribeiro.com.br/en/
Walter Tada Nomura, a.k.a. Tinho lives between Sao Paolo and Europe. Since the 1980s he has developed an artistic career linked with some of the main urban movements in Brazil, such as Skate, Pichação, Punk and Hip-Hop.
He is a pioneer and leading name in the field of Latin American graffiti. His work implies a deep research about the relationship of art and the city what made him become a reference for many theses and sociological conversations.
Tinho has taken part of group shows at important institutions such as the Centro Cultural São Paulo, Paço das Artes, MIS, Caixa Cultural, Santander Cultural, the
Memorial da América Latina and the Pavilhão das Culturas Brasileiras, as well as at the biennials of Havana (2009) and Vento Sul (Curitiba, 2009). He has held solo shows in various private galleries around the world and, at the invitation of the Brazilian Ministry of
Foreign Affairs, he has shown his work in London and Moscow.
Ananda Nahu, was born in 1985 in Juazeiro, Bahia, painting since 2005. She often creates portraits of African women, children and music symbols, using the bright colours of Brazil, blending stencil techniques with diverse materials such as the traditional fabrics of
the North East of Brazil. Humans are the core of her work, sensitive and delicate, respecting the diverse facets of artistic events in human history, and adding vibrant colours and dynamic forms, lending warmth, life, strength
and energy to the composition of her works. Ananda exhibits extensively in Brazil and internationally, passing by America, Holland, Germany, France, UK and having many collectors around the world. www.anahu.com
Milo works with organic elements, mixing nature, spirituality, music and environment. His hypnotic forms wave through his art with an explosion of vibrant and uplifting colours, psychedelically weaving life and the cosmos. He has taken part in important shows such as the Elephant Parade at Sotheby’s, MuTate Britain, Pure Evil Gallery in London, and has been shown in West
Hollywood, throughout the US and in Brazil extensively. Milo has returned to Brazil after many years in London and part of his solo work he collaborated with ‘The Local Studio’ team with a showroom space in Vila Madalena,
in the heart of São Paulo’s alternative culture.
SHN is a collective of multidisciplinary street artists, whose creativity wanders between performances including music, architecture, tattoo and video
production. They also work with public interventions with posters and stickers. Their studio in the city of Americana in the countryside of São Paulo is a cultural hub, where they organize events and exhibitions and
produce set designs, T-shirts and prints. The collective, formed by Andrew Ortega, Daniel Cucatti, Eduardo Saretta, Haroldo Paranhos, Marcelo Fazola and Rogério Fernandes (CDR) is know for their icons,
transforming the idea of symbols and trademarks through an extensive range of media.
