Sao Paulo: The City That Said No To Advertising – Sky Advert Update

saopaulonologo

I mentioned Sao Paulo’s advertising ban last year and hadn’t really though much about it for a while. Then I saw a Sky TV advert last night that used Sao Paulo’s blank billboards as a way of saying that they don’t place adverts during their movies. All I’ll say is that the photography is superb and it’s by far the best way in which I’ve seen The City’s skyline…apart from Tony De Marco’s fantastic Sao Paulo No Logo Flickr set (where this photo came from) of course.

Invisible Graffiti

Check these kids painting some Invisible Graffiti on a huge scale. All you need is for the terrorist squad to come along and pretend to arrest them and throw them in jail for weeks for pretend torturingquestioning about their Bin Laden connections! Everything mischievous is connected with terrorism right?! [via]

Klingatron has some super complicated stencil work on show. Very Logan Hicks in places but there’s nothing wrong with that.

Peter Derrett’s FAO2

Peter Derrett, aka Lil’ Pete, has finally created his own portfolio site. I say finally as it’s a website that I’ve personally been waiting to see for quite a while. He’s a fantastic photographer and the internet deserves some proper space to showcase his images. So, check out FAO2 but don’t forget his Flickr though.

Wow! Check Zhang Peng’s photography section for some incredibly photo-based paintings of little girls. These beautiful images are quickly turned into being quite terrifying.
