Temporal - The Art of Stephan Doitschinoff

Documentary and interview
Posted by Gestalten—11/2008

Calma is not only artist Stephan Doitschinoff‘s street alias, but also the abbreviation of “con alma” (c’alma) in Latin, meaning “with soul”. His emblematic metaphoric imagery feeds off Afro-Brazilian folklore, pagan and alchemistic symbolism and contemporary pop culture. Doitschinoff composes spectacular murals and applies his extraordinary talent to emblazon houses, churches and walls in rural cities in his South American homeland. Temporal provided courtesy of Carol Dantas, Paula Cavalcanti (Production Executives), and Bruno Mitih (Director) documents his artistic journey through the Brazilian countryside of Bahia and features an interview with the artist – introducing the complete visual pandemonium of a young urban artist who creates powerful and unique figurative worlds.

Director: Bruno Mitih Art Director: Pedro Inoue Camera Assistant: Thiago Silva Executive Producer: Carol Dantas, Paula Cavalcanti Sound: Saxsofunny A production by Movie and Art 2008
