Ethos has been interested in graffiti since the 90’s. He was surrounded by Pixacao and began spray painting around the age of 15, at the end of the 90’s in a small town in Sao Paolo, called Birigui.” (urbannation) https://www.instagram.com/claudioethos/ “For those who believe in God, most of the big questions are answered. But for those of us who can’t readily accept the God formula, the big answers don’t remain stone-written. We adjust to new conditions and discoveries. We are pliable. Love need not be a command nor faith a dictum. I am my own god. We are here to unlearn the teachings of the church, state, and our educational system. We are here to drink beer. We are here to kill war. We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us.” ― Charles Bukowski …fit for a Queen april 2018.

You know exactly wjat I am going to say! Beaitiful work as always. I asore tour style. Would love to know more about the techniques you use to change your photos. Do you use Photoshop or something else? Lovely post, thank you!
Lol, thanks so much ~ I use a variety of techniques to try to emanate a feeling from each individual picture. Means a lot that you notice. I don’t know how to use Photoshop. However, I have Snapseed on my iPad and use that to try to get the ‘right nuance’ for my photos. Have a great weekend!
Photoshop is very expensive, and quite cpnplex to learn, so if you have found something else that does the trick for you, that is super!
absolutely stunning! Art matters <3
Wow! Beautiful for of Art.
