About the Project

As of November 2024 ArtBridge reached its fourth continent, with a major installation in São Paulo, Brazil. Jon Souza (Brazilian-American), Program Director at ArtBridge, and renowned artist in his own rite known as “Phes”), worked with eleven local artists to paint both sides of the Utinga Train Station in the Santo André neighborhood.

Timed to coincide with the Dia de Consciência Negra (Day of Black Consciousness) opening events featured live painting, DJs, representatives from the US Consulate, and from the CPTM (São Paulo Metropolitan Trains Co.) While the original plan had been to paint one large internal wall at the station, local enthusiasm was so strong that ArtBridge was unexpectedly given the monumental external wall as well, facing out into the surrounding community of Morro do Cigano. The result was a cohesive, large-scale project that will define the Utinga Station for the near future and that will likely live on as pivotal to the development of street art in São Paulo.
