Lazy Sunday – Bicicleta sem freio
This artistic duo grew up in Goiania, Brazil. They studied graphic design but now they work only as illustrators. They are doing it since they are kids and that is really what they enjoy to do so they feel lucky. They also extended their art into the street through murals since a few years, “its almost the same but at a bigger scale”, they say. Now they are asked to paint all around the world so thats another aspect that they enjoy.
About their working methods and the process that they follow, they explain that for the illustrations, they sketch a lot, they try new things and consult each other during the process and when they are satisfied they finish with black ink, then scan and color on digital. For the murals they use the same method and then paint it on the walls with emulsion and spray paint.
Recently, they released a new screen print ‘Hammer Time’. All the funds were to Pangeaseed, a non profit that helps to create conscious to protect the marine life and endangered species. In addition to the print they are flying to their festival in Cozumel Mexico called Sea Walls to do a mural. In September they were to a new Festival in the US named Unexpected for a gigantic mural.
The hardest thing they’ve ever done is painting a huge building in Los Angeles last year. “That was pretty hard to do”, they say. “First because it was one of our first murals and also because I am very scared of the highs. One side was not accessible with the lift so we worked on scaffolding… scary!”.
Their favorite historical figure is Geraldinho. The song that gets stuck in their head most often is Talismã by Leandro e Leonardo and their favorite food is feijoada and pamonha (the are brazilian).
