Guest Artist: Samina 5 > 9 OCT 2016 – Gil Eanes Highschool, Lagos
Work around the stencil techniques and it’s complexity: small and big scale formats and it’s multiple applications.
JOÃO SAMINA (1989, Setúbal)
Architect, varied artist, since his youth he was in contact with the world of arts, mainly drawing and painting. When he was 14 he started spreading stickers around the streets and discreetly started his debut in the world of street art.
For several years he accompanied the growth of the movement, and was growing as a self taught artist. It ́s during this time that he discovers the art of stencil and in 2010 felt capable enough to produce bigger and more consistent work.
Ever since then SAMINA’s been on a constant search for new excitements and experiences on each work he makes, putting together a language of his own, using stencil techniques with other art elements from his own roots in street art, graphic design, painting and architecture.
