Felipe, also known as TALU, is a graffiti writer, born in 1986 in Macaé, in the north of the state of Rio de Janeiro, and now lives in Rio where he expresses all his talent.

He started graffiti in the early 2000s, he is one of the pioneers of the practice of graffiti in the inner cities of the state. He is influenced by period lettering and seeks original graffiti typography.
Constantly seeking to evolve, his colorful WildStyle is inspired by the urban scene and composes in situ, in search of a balance between his colors and the environment where he puts his name. He is an artist very present in the streets of Rio and his popularity is growing throughout Brazil.
TALU questions society with his art, he exchanges a lot with passing populations when he paints in the middle of the street. He thinks of graffiti as a means of communication and socialization of human beings.

Felipe has diversified with the digital tool to develop his production in a fairly intuitive way. This allows him to prepare sketches for the next frescoes, as well as to produce high quality works to send to the printing workshops.

TALU is a talented graffiti artist and belongs to several Crews with which his expression is enriched and evolves. It is part of the Academia Brasileira de Letras (ABL) [Brazilian Academy of Letters], the Semper na Evolução (SNE) [Constantly Evolving], the Coletivo só letras (CSL) [Collective of Letters], the Viciados em Letras (VL) [Addicted to Letters] and finally DREAM TEAM INT (a graffiti collective made up of Brazilian, Italian and British writers).

He has participated in several festivals and exhibitions in Brazil and also exports his work to the United States, notably Los Angeles last year, to Peru, Venezuela, Italy, the Netherlands and Germany. It has also already been presented in France by participating in a few events.
