We Love Oz
André has drawn a depiction of his famous Mr A. character for his Cryptograph. In this particular case he has portrayed Mr A. as an unhappy planet earth who appears to be melting. André’s Cryptograph is a reference to how damaged our planet and environment is becoming and how global warming is essentially ‘melting away’ our world. In the top right of his artwork we see the words ‘We Love Oz’ (also the title of his piece) which is a message of support to the nation of Australia given the catastrophic wildfires that they endured earlier this year. His Cryptograph is supporting the environment and helping to combat climate change.
André Saraiva
André Saraiva known as André was born in Sweden but grew up on the outskirts of Paris where he began tagging his name on his neighbourhood’s walls as a teenager. He was part of the early Parisian graffiti movement alongside artists like Space Invader and Zevs. He eventually found his iconic signature and alter-ego: a round-headed figure with long limbs and a circle and a cross for eyes - Mr A. He was one of the first artists in the 80s to use this kind of logotype as his signature. He has painted his Mr.A character across all six inhabited continents and his work has exhibited globally from the Parco Museum in Tokyo to the Grand Palais in Paris. His work is also in the MoCA and he and his work have also been featured films such as Exit Through the Gift Shop. Many of the world's largest luxury brands have commissioned him to design for them including; Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Tiffany & Co, Sonia Rykel, Nike, Levis and many more. He is an artist who is constantly experimenting with new media, most recently working with traditional Portuguese tiles to create a wall in the heart of Lisbon.
