It's hard to walk more than a couple blocks in NYC without seeing the work of PIXOTE, the reclusive Rio de Janeiro born artist whose giant Pixação style tags currently dominate the city skyline. dose spent a day with PIXOTE on the eve of the release of his collaborative skate deck series with Fools Gold Records & SHUT Skateboards to learn about the passion that drives him to create public art even at a high risk to himself. Featuring the skating of SHUT's Pat Hoblin and music from Fool's Gold artist Black Atlass.
