About Alex Senna

It’s not often that you walk down the street and encounter an artwork that warms your heart or brings a smile to your face, but for Brazilian street artist and muralist Alex Senna, positive emotion seems to be his visual currency. His lanky black and white characters often are found in a variety of hopeful, loving, and positive scenes, from a pair of lovers embracing to a family riding a bicycle. To intensify their emotional depths, Senna often gives the flat characters broad shadows that stretch out across urban walls.
