It's not often that one comes across street art that has a spiritual edge (often they have a more political agenda than anything else), yet that is exactly what you will get with Stephan Doitschinoff's work. Thankfully, his graffiti and canvas work isn't preachy, it is simply a reflection of his ideals, imagination and upbringing.

Also known as Calma, Stephan Doitschinoff grew up with an Evangelical minister. Currently based between both Bahia and São Paulo, he is a self-taught artist. This is a truly impressive fact considering how amazing his artwork is in both detail and direction.

Stephan Doitschinoff often blends symbolism, religious art and iconography from various influences including Afro-Brazilian traditions, Paganism, Catholicism and Christianity. Both contemporary and archaic, his work is completely captivating.
