I aint too sure what these guys stand for..or why they doing what they doing…but theyre fucking nuts.

”Despite laws, pixações have taken over São Paulo. Literally meaning ‘trace’ or ‘stain’ and dating back in its contemporary form to the mid-1980s, pixaçõe is a striking form of graffiti unique to the city that developed when Sao Paulo writers began creating imaginary calligraphic signatures influenced by hybrid blackletter, historic letterforms and the logos of heavy metal and hardcore bands.”
