Bráulio Amado is a Portuguese graphic designer and illustrator known for many things. You may have seen his editorial work in publications such as The New York Times, FADER or Vanity Fair, his posters used for club nights and events around New York, his installation work such as his collaboration with Adidas for Hypefest.  You may have stopped by his store in the East Village of NYC named ‘SSHH, or you might know the artist due to his record covers created for various artists in the music field.

Amado’s work has been described as having a ‘special energy’ surrounding it. This ‘special energy’ takes the form of magnificent shapes and somewhat vibrant colours that jump off of the page or even a screen. The artist’s trademark style, or should we say his lack of a trademark style, showcases his makeshift imagination, his ability to create a beautiful mess and his goal of producing something new with every piece created. The artist doesn’t want to be known for a certain ‘style’ but known for his aim to express himself and never allow his work to become boring, giving his clients something unique with every collaboration.

The artist’s unique work has a certain effect on an audience that leaves them craving for more, but it also seems to be the music industry that has been left craving for Amado’s artistic style that is popping up left, right and centre in the form of record covers. Collaborating with artists such as Frank Ocean, Roisin Murphy, Arthur, Rex Orange County, Beck, Vegyn and many more, Amado seems to have become the go-to graphic designer for record releases. It is as if the creative imagination of both Bráulio Amado and his musical collaborators combine and allow the musician to showcase what the music would look like in a physical form.

If Amado’s artwork hasn’t captured your attention, then his store ‘Sixth Street Haunted House’, also known as ‘SSHH’ might be something to look out for. The multi-purpose mutant space where people can go to learn, make, buy or share something is solely run by Bráulio Amado and Nick Schiarizzi. The space is a store on weekdays until 7 pm, when it then turns into a fun and magical location where events, classes, talks, art happenings and shows all take place. On Amado’s website, he explains the creative space as being a location for weirdness  “Because we think New York could be 10000x weirder than it is right now. Come by and learn French with us, or tell us nasty stories in the dark, or bring your art to hang on the wall, or watch weird performances or just complain with us about how everyone in NYC these days is a Lululemon brunch drone from Ohio. No offense”. ‘SSHH’ is a location that allows the weirdness of his makeshift work to intertwine with the real world and in a sense, allows the artist’s audience to step into his mind.
