Eunise Olvera LBST 2102 Carolina Oliveira 04/25/19 Cultural Report The documentary “PIXO” by Joao Wainer and Roberto T. Oliveira takes place in São Paulo. The name “pixo” explains an art that certain people from the lower class neighborhoods have developed in order to protest conditions in Brazil. It is explained in the documentary that pixo is different from graffiti due to the fact that its purpose is to convey a message and the lettering was derived from heavy metal album covers and is mostly black whereas graffiti is bright and typically doesn’t signify a deeper meaning.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
