The work of Claudio Ethos, born in São Paulo in 1982, consists of paintings and drawings using a variety of materials.
His paintings are developed in different forms and shapes, with a focus on exterior mural paintings, graffiti and muralism. Ethos’ trademark style derives from his designs and use of black and white, resulting in work with a more classic character. He explores colours in a subtle and well-considered way. By using shadows, Ethos creates volumes in his paintings.
Ethos started painting when still a kid inspired by graffiti art in the streets of São Paulo. His work is seen in the streets for over ten years now. Later he studied painting and photography at the federal academy of visual arts in Londrina. Ethos had his first solo-exposition in Grottaglie (Italy) in 2007, followed by several different street art festivals in which he participated in the same city.
Since 2008, Ethos works regularly in the US. The first time with the 111 Minna Gallery. In the following years, he returned several times to the US and did shows in New York and Miami.
Today Ethos is especially exploring his mural art in public space throughout Europe and the US.

Een beetje verstopt achter de opvallende Spar bij de inrit van de IJtunnel vinden we deze mural.
Als we nog terugdenken aan de controverse rond de schildering van 'The London Police' aan de Prinsengracht/Tuinstraat, die uiteindelijk gelukkig behouden bleef, vind ik het wel bijzonder dat Monumentenzorg en VVAB hier mee akkoord zijn gegaan.
Maar de toestand van het pand is niet echt heel goed. Ik denk dat de kans groot is dat het op termijn gerenoveerd wordt en dat de schildering uiteindelijk weer sneuvelt. Maar zover is het nog niet.

A bit hidden behind the striking Spar at the entrance of the IJtunnel we find this mural.
If we still recall the controversy surrounding the painting of ' The London Police ' on the Prinsengracht/Garden Street, which eventually retaining happy, I find it particularly that preservation of monuments and VVAB here agreed.
but the State of the property is not really very good. I think the chance that it will, in time, undergoing renovations and that the painting was eventually. But as far as it is not yet.
