STOPPING-GOING FORWARD
This action was made on the street; it consisted of breaking the red and green colors of traffic lights with a rifle, leaving the yellow light intact

Camara: Juan Pablo Macias
AVERSION

A housing development has a wall which delimitates and excludes it from neighborhoods next to it, with only one entry and one exit, therefore; inhabitants created small gates on the back and lateral walls which allow them to get in touch with everything nearby.
This action consisted of obstructing gates (seven) with a cross piece made with wood and barbed wire.

This action consisted of taking off my pants and giving them to a vagabond, wearing them on his ankles made his walk so difficult.


This action consisted of covering a person who was sleeping on the street with a blanket.
Inmanente

This action was across the street to help a blind, with my eyes closed
LANDSCAPE CARTOGRAPHY
This action was made on a window of the local transport during the normal travel. It consisted of copying some fragments of the landscape on the glass that I watched throughout the window. This work was made every single time the bus stopped, in order to create a map of the landscape

Bravo´s work derives from small events documented on photographs or video. These events generate situations aiming to disturb the viewer’s perception and to activate the space where they are carried out.


Started his career knitting a framework in the other side of the art circuit (and he stayed there for years) the streets. With a provocative moral vision, Bravo Works from the actions that have helped him building a net where he can move, as a skilled acrobat, in the deep ends of the cities where he lives, and the marginalized characters that generate the invisible, deep, underground life, the pile of invisible layers that make up social stratums and the economical-political-social morphology of the big cities.
