Tinho aka Walter Nomura began his career in the 1980s, when he formed a generation of artists aware of urban art as a poetic strategy of recognition in the city, as a powerful language, already part of the history of art. His pioneering production grew in importance for the contemporary Brazilian scene. The artist, like many of his generation, started with graffiti, having the city itself as canvas. Later on, he started using his academic painting skills with more emphasis, followed by photography and installations with characters that accompanied him from an early age. His work is contextualized by the place of man in the urban space, crossed by an acid critique of characters who hide their loneliness behind pleasant looks. In the first Vulica, in 2014, he created the mural “Saying Goodbye to Childhood”.
