Graffiti and punk rock drew skisms into the art world. Starting just four years ago painting his own jackets, this artist in England has ventured over the last year onto canvas and boards.
“I don't see a lot of value in what I do, really, I just have an eye for copying stuff and juxtaposing it.”
Here at CARPAZINE we think it not only has value, we think it’s pretty fucking cool. MORE:

Heather Freitas: Wasteland series!
Fernando Carpaneda is definitely one of the most important artists of Brazil's underground art scene. Fernando began his career at age thirteen painting landscapes and unpretentious portraits. He honed his craft and talent with every new piece created. Today, the young boy has become a man, his acclaimed art ever growing with international recognition and appreciation! The lack of social acceptance of "underground" and street culture depicted in his work made the early years of Fernando's career in Brasilia difficult to say the least. When a renowned art gallery owner suggested changes in Fernando's works to make them ''fit better”, Carpaneda broke with the conventionality of art galleries and took off for a far more personal and radical artistic journey. He began to exhibit in unofficial spaces or just simply in the streets, he often got his inspiration from these very same places. At the same time, some of the new admirers of his art became stars of international rock music or found fame in the film industry. These include: Arturo Vega (The Ramones), Leigh De Vries, Ginger Coyote, myself (Manoush), and many others.

Carpazine:Tell us the brief history of your band.
Tolga: Everything just started with Aybike and me. Our relationship is always creative. Before we married, we had been jamming with our friends for fun. I was playing with my punk rock band, "Rashit", for 20 years and I got bored to be in a band in that time. We had just began to record experimental instrumental tracks with Aybike and made video collages for them under the name "Solar Chaos" who released an album for a Canadian record label: "Fuck Yr Body Up". After that, Aybike wrote some lyrics and we recorded four songs on a holiday trip, it's our family fun at the beginning. We changed our name to "Reptilians From Andromeda" and we got good feedback from Some US labels after we uploaded our songs to SoundCloud. We released four Ep's and an album in just three months.
