Fefe Talavera • 16/11/1979 • Brazilian/Mexican
Born from Mexican and Brazilian parents in Sao Paulo, Fefe who I met in Vienna through mutual friends from the Crunchtime collective during her artist residency at the Museums Quartier instantly became like a sister and one of the closest friends to my soul. We share one of the deepest connections and love I encountered in this life, so she will forever be stuck in my heart...
The world-renowned street artist Fefe Talavera's work serves as a metaphor for strong and subconscious human emotions like anger, fear, dreams and desire. The colourful beasts that she depicts celebrate her cultural roots and the stylistic freedom of the street art of her hometown.
Fefe took part in more than 70 different exhibitions and artists residencies in South and North America, Europe and Africa.
She went through regular artistic schooling at FAAP, and makes it clear that everything she actually learned and seeks to express was found on the street. It came from the tremendous shock felt at the brutal reality that the big city offers to her eyes, from the impact and social contrasts, from the disturbing perception of scenarios and themes that no academy would even be able to imagine. If she were not the daughter of Mexicans, dragons and winged monsters pervade the world of ideas, animals from remote mythologies out of dreams and materialized in a profusion of shapes and colors, not to mention the separate heads of bodies, perhaps in some primitive ritual: in such moments, it is as if an Aztec demon took her by the hand. But the artist knows how to mix this ancestral fable with elements of Brazilian urban culture, and the result is an invitation to the viewer to immerse themselves in a world governed by atavistic forces and the pulsars of the city, without at any time changing the high artistic level in that develops all its production.
