Mario Bands is a communicator, arts educator and graffiti artist. He is an artist who intervenes in the urban environment with artworks marked by intense geometry use and precise lighting, shadowing and colouring. Mario Bands uses graffiti to move elements, cause confusion and betray the observer’s look by placing new shapes in the mediums he uses. With a sharp look, Bands seeks spaces and objects to express his artistic gesture, often turning to places that are excluded from the art circuit. Bands graduated in Social Communications – Advertising from Hélio Alonso Integrated College, in Rio de Janeiro. He also went to Parque Lage Visual Arts School.
