Pixels as Inks, Computer as Studio and Street as Gallery.
Alberto Pereira is a street artist born in Rio de Janeiro and raised between Niterói, Rio de Janeiro, Brasília and Angra dos Reis.
He creates images of images, exploring contexts and giveing new meaning to things, layers, weights and proportions. Sometimes
revert, making the first object become completely different. And in this game of images, the quest is to touch the hearts and
minds of the viewer, making dozens of layers become hundreds of feelings.
His work was featured in urban art festivals, contemporary art exhibitions and digital festivals as La Première Expo de GIF (Paris, 2016), Art Rua (Brazil, 2016), CHEAP Street Art Festival (Italy, 2017), Something Else Off Biennale Cairo (Egypt, 2018), Brazil-Lebanon Cultural Center (Lebanon, 2018).
