The work of Herbert Baglione is one of the reasons why new contemporary art inspires people all over the world. His distinctive and heavy style, combined with the complexity of the themes he explores, visible in his illustrations, paintings, and interventions, have granted him recognition in the international art and design world. Aside from painting in the street, he paints the streets. Herbert is one of the few artists who use sidewalks, roofs, and even lawns as screens for his creations. As a calligrapher, he is poetic and elegant and, at the same time, resembles graffiti artists from his hometown, São Paulo. You can see the same distinct elegance and style in your paintings: it uses black and white or darkness and light, and sometimes it breaks that pattern with a prism in the rainbow colors. On the streets, black-and-white figures fold into corners or a roof. The walls and the floor of forgotten places are populated by shaded ghosts, characterized by their elongated limbs and sinuous bodies. In the slippery, garbage-filled corridors of an abandoned psychiatric hospital, his figures drag thin bodies through the walls and open doors. On a large screen, an overweight woman floats in a huge black room, entangled in elegant botanical forms. Through Herbert's iconic, figurative, and even mystical style, his characters are elevated to beings from another world. He mentions death, chaos, and individualism as the main themes in such works. Big cities, especially the ones like São Paulo, are the products of inspiration and frustration. It is possible to breathe through his work and understand how he expresses himself in different ways. He describes Sao Paulo as the "origin of confrontation," a place where cold individualism prevails and the chaos caused by daily confrontations between people demands a rebirth, a new mask every day. For Baglione, the architecture of a city is not just a backdrop that serves as the basis for its work. According to him, everything around us is a single organism, a living and pulsating body in which the elements develop and blend with one another. That is why he describes his work as an instrument of integrating architecture, where his drawings and characters highlight the elements already present.
