Bicicleta Sem Freio (“Bicycle Without Brake”) is an internationally acclaimed Brazilian duo of illustrators and muralists, Douglas de Castro and Renato Perreira.
They have accomplished in a couple of years what many hope to do in a lifetime. Founded in Brazil, in 2005 Bicicleta’s style draws references from their roots in music, Brazilian culture, their love for the 80s and pop iconography.
In just four years their work has emerged on multiple large-scale public art installations all over the world, in collaboration with the curatorial collective, "Just Kids". Their work can be seen in major cities like London, Berlin, Hong Kong, Miami, Las Vegas, Montreal or Los Angeles (where they painted the largest building ever downtown).
In addition to their engaging illustrations and provocative murals, they have also collaborated with brands such as Nike, NBA, UFC, CONVERSE, and Vans as well as created gig posters for prestigious artists and bands such as Beck, Kings Of Leon, and Vampire Weekend.
