Wheat pasting is a cool form of Street Art. Many artists come up with awesome ideas and concepts which are printed extra large or are completely hand drawn. Recently we received the link of this cool documentary about wheat pasting. To be very honest, after seeing this documentary we’re really motivated to bring our voice to the streets.
This documentary came up from a question: “Why do I do this kind of art in the streets?” As this question kept bothering me, I took point on seeking around other street artists and ask them “What’s the impact that your art causes on yourself and the city?”, trying to answer within myself what was the real impact these interventions caused in my soul and consequently the city itself. I’ve searched around 30 artists, shot them wheatpasting and speaking about it and I suddenly realized I had a good material in hands, which could be turned out into a documentary. Then I started editing it and the documentary came to light.
The documentary “Cola na Veia” by MaicknucleaR, is an independent production which explores the plurality of themes and narratives brought by the art made using posters – the wheat pasting – interfering in the urbanization using only paper and wheat paste. The film features 30 artists of the wheat pasting scene, which through their interventions, cause impact in the city bringing along many different expressions having a rich prism of reivindications, messages, and reflexion.

When I think of wheat pasting I immediately think of 2 artists: Handiedan from Amsterdam & JR Artist from Paris. As you see in the documentary there are a lot of fanatics who all paste with a different reason.
