MONE E CELO
WHAT IS YOUR STORY?
It's difficult to explain us, Mone and Celo are two different artists and with different paths. In short, we have started through the hiphop movement. We take graffiti very serious and we love to be on streets bringing colour and positive ideas. All artistic expression imapcts on people¥s lives and it makes us have faith in urban art.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
Our style irreverent as hip hop and our country is.
YOU ARE ALSO ACTIVE AS FINE ARTISTS, HOW DOES YOUR CREATIVE APPROACH DIFFER FROM WALLS TO CANVAS AND PAPER?
During a wall painting, ideas come to us during the process, contributing to the outcome. On canvas or paper the idea is the same, just the space and time dedicated to it is different.
We use all the resources that art offers, and through this we create new techniques to work with.
WHY DID YOU CHOSE MONE E CELO AS YOUR NAME?
We kept our artist names and created ìMone and Celoî as a partnership name when our friendship began,in 2011.
HOW DO YOU PREPARE YOURSELF FOR A PIECE?
Usually we do not paint every week on the streets, we look for inspirations to build new ideas. When we paint with friends, we do not plan, we just want to be with them and have fun, this is the meaning of graffiti and hip hop after all.
THE GRAFFITI/ STREET ART SCENE HAS GROWN OVER THE YEARS, WHAT WOULD YOU SAY ARE SOME OF THE MOST POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE EFFECTS?
Back to 2004 and 2005, we were introduced to graffiti and hip hop scene. Gaining access to the graffiti world was very hard, and just through ìRevista Graffitî, a magazine from Sao Paulo city, it was possible to hear news about it. Today, the technology makes everything easier. People here use the BomB style technique a lot, however, on more elaborated walls you don't see it too often. The styles and techniches are different around the MONE E CELLO world and we are happy to see graffiti growing and spreading around since there is a lot of love for the art. There are a lot of artists that just make urban art in order to be famous and be called artists; that's not fair on the real artists.
IF YOU WERE TO DESCRIPE YOUR STYLE TO A BLIND PERSON, WHAT WOULD YOU SAY?
We have already explained our art to a blind person, but it was easy to explain because the person liked to paint before they became blind.
NAME YOUR TO THREE TRACKS FOR SKETCHING/ PAINTING
Jam on Revenge (the wikki-wikki song), O Rapa ñ Anjos, Gil Scott Heron - In the buttle. These are the best musical inspirations to paint and draw.
ANY FUTURE EXCITING FUTURE EVENTS COMING UP?
This year a lot of good things will happen and we sure the readers will like it. Thanks to Ghost Magazine for the opportunity to express and represent Brazil! Mone & Celo Belo Horizonte, Brazil.
