Exclusive interview with nominated artist Antonio Bokel

In the course of two decades, Antonio Bokel has presented his work in Brazil and abroad, either in galleries or through urban interventions, connecting street art to contemporary art.

In this interview given exclusively for the Prize, the artist says that the great strength behind his production comes from painting, which supports his works with photography and silkscreen printing.

About urban interventions, Bokel comments: “It’s as if there was a hidden harmony already commanding it all, which we have no control over. It’s almost as if I were a scientist looking for proof.” The artist also talks about the roles intuition and organisation play in his creative process and tells us ab it of the beginning of his career.
