JAM SESSION Exhibition

The theme of this new work has everything to do with music.

It presents a new development of my work, where I delve into abstract painting. I worked from experimentation, painting the canvases like someone playing in a jazz band by pure improvisation. That's why the title of the exhibition is Jam Session.

I have great affinity with jazz, blues and instrumental music. Styles where improvisation is the creative process itself.

At the opening of the expo we had a Jam between the musicians Marcelinho da Lua, Edu Neves and Guto Wirtti who made some sound experiments at the vernissage that took place on May 12, 2022 at Artur Fidalgo Galeria.

Pista de Skate

The tracks signed by Rio Ramp Design are every skater's dream. Park and street side by side, were designed from skater to skater. The guys are great!

In order to create a painting to accompany the event's identity but also to hinder the athlete's performance, it was necessary to work with a simpler and more punctual language.

Many thanks to my painting team who were very good at this project. Production by Carol Lyra and assistance from Grabriel “Simo” and João “No tooth” who share with on site, under the sun and rain!

Vulica Brazil

It was amazing to take my art and paint this panel and also be able to do it alongside such interested people. Very committed organizers and volunteers always willing to work and carry out this event, thank you for showing me your culture! It's great to meet some friends and even better make new ones!

Thank you! Special thanks to my team!

About the panel, When I was invited I wanted to do something very colorful and with a good message. After some sketches I came up with the idea of ​​the woman taking care of her garden. This led me to the poetry of Mario Quintana that says in one part:

"The secret is not to take care of the butterflies, but to take care of the garden so that they come to you."

Which is a metaphor about taking care of yourself and looking in yourself for the person to love that good things will return. Take good care of yourself, of those around you that good things will come.


Solo exhibition took place in October at the Next Street Gallery, in Paris, France

Fotogravura Urca

In August 2018, I had the honor of launching, together with Thereza Miranda, her 90th anniversary commemorative print. It took place in the exhibition “Memória” at Artur Fidalgo Galeria.

Arte-Core is a traditional event in the Rio de Janeiro scene. It takes place in the gardens of the Museum of Modern Art in Rio de Janeiro and has a large audience as it is free and open to all ages. With urban art as its focus, the event brings to its audience music, skateboarding, workshops and, of course, a lot of art.

Big was invited to paint the 8m x 6m panel that will be on display until next year for Arte Core 2019.

Below is the text made by the artist about his work:

Homage to the old masters of painting and their wisdom.

The compositions known as Vanitas (Vanity) can be seen in the creations of different artists at different times and places in the history of art.

Based on classic still life paintings, these compositions bring symbols and elements that represent the vanity, ego and ephemerality of life.

An invitation to the observer's self-analysis about his ego, his character and how his attitudes reverberate in his life and after the passage to the other plane, since we don't take anything material over there.

What do you want to be remembered for?


Street River

Street River is a very special project, taking place in the Amazon and taking urban art to the riverside people of Ilha do Combú, located on the Guamá River in front of Belém do Pará.

Created by Sebá Tapájos, the Street River Institute goes beyond the initiative of bringing art to Combú Island, its main intention is to bring attention to the condition of the riverside people who live mainly from what they extract from the river and the forest. Through partnerships with companies and NGOs, the project can make improvements to the site, such as the implementation of ecological toilets, distribution of filters to make drinking water and even the installation of solar panels to capture energy for the local school, since the lack of light is something evident in the place.

Bruno Big was invited to be part of the team of artists who participated in the event in June 2018. Among them, artists from several places in Brazil and one from Germany. He had the pleasure of painting the house of a family where Bob and Sara, parents of 4 boys, live. Arthur, the youngest, was the artist's main assistant. The father builds boats and it was his request to create a hammer shark on the side of the house where he works. On the other side, the panel symbolizes the family and the upbringing of children.

The experience and immersion in the local culture make Street River a unique art event, where artists and local people exchange and interact very closely. Learning is immense and ends up influencing artists in their creations and lives.

Felipe Ret

Filipe Ret is among the most prominent carioca rappers on the national scene. Considered a phenomenon on social networks and on stages, the young man was just another brand on the city walls, until the then graffiti artist became known in the fights of MC's in Lapa.

With sharp verses, this Catete offspring has been conquering its territory, mixing the language of the streets with a somewhat philosophical touch and calling the attention of names that inspired him.

For the clip of his song “Chief of the Perfect Crime”, the artist asked that a special outfit be made, with the stamp signed by Bruno Big.
