NYC-via-Rio de Janeiro graffiti legend Pixote is known for making the Lower East Side his personal studio. Partnering with Manhattan’s SHUT Skateboards and Brooklyn-based record label Fool’s Gold is a natural fit for the street artist; a skateboarder himself. In a rare interview with 12oz Prophet, Pixote discusses the current collaboration as well as his work as a street artist in NYC. Though he’s been in the States for 16 years, his Brazilian roots still impact both his work and the way he sees graffiti. The interview offers valuable insight into his life and work.
