Francisco Rodrigues da Silva ("Nunca") is the foremost Brazilian "grafiteiro" artist who uses a graffiti technique to create images that confront modern urban Brazil with its native past. His tag "Nunca" means "Never" and is an affirmation of his determination not to be bound by cultural or psychological constraints - "Nunca para as limitações culturais e mentais". Nunca's works are described as narratives that tell complex stories. Nunca started to produce striking, intensely coloured figures inspired by indigenous Brazilian culture. His works attracted first local and then international attention. The artist makes active use of the city as a medium, his characters witness and interact with the city and its people. Nunca has exhibited in Brazil at the Museum of Modern Art in São Paulo and around the world. He was invited by Tate Modern in the UK to exhibit his works. There he painted graffiti featured in the exhibition 15 metres high on Tate Modern’s external walls.
