Street-cool visual artist-cum-nightlife guru, Andre Saraiva, whose life dovetails into graffiti subculture, chic jet-setting, and the fashion world, presents an intimate, autobiographical visual diary of sorts, a revealing window into the worlds he inhabits.
Chances are that while you’ve been strolling anywhere in the world, you may have caught a glimpse of Saraiva’s eye-popping signature stick-figure graffiti as Mr. A on a random street wall; or you may have spied him in Banksy’s film, Exit Through the Gift Shop; spied him in the front rows of the Paris Fashion Week shows; paged through his L’Officiel Homme magazine; or follow him in photos one of his many chic exclusive nightclubs. Saraiva is the definition of rakish cool.
This is a never-before-seen look at the artist’s many spheres through which he effortless moves: street culture, contemporary art, graphic design, photography, fashion, and nightlife. With interactivepop-ups, hand-drawn personal notes, and booklets, the book follows Saraiva’s art and life, and includes his tags on the streets of Paris; countless silk-screened posters; paintings and sculpture; creative collaborations with Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and Colette. André Saraiva: Curated Chaos is the story of this cultural force of nature
