Maurício Brandão is the Co-founder of BijaRi Collective. Bijari is a São Paulo-based art and architecture collective combining public art, spatial critique and urban life. Maurício holds a degree in Architecture and Urbanism from the University of São Paulo and earned a postgraduate degree from the Centro de Cultura Contemporanea de Barcelona.
The BijaRi collective emerged from an urgency to investigate, discuss and question the hegemonic discourses that shape the urban landscape´s physical and symbolic dimensions. Focusing in particular on urban enclaves, BijaRi stages confrontational actions and presents provocative images that foster resistance and disturb so-called “normality”. Through a diverse range of media including poster campaigns, cartographies, large-scale video-projections and urban interventions, Bijari seeks to blur the line between public and private, central and peripheral, official and illegal in order to configure new poetical and political territories.
