So what’s Red Tag about?

While searching for justice on the streets of São Paulo, Lis, Lu and Leco – three friends bonded by their love for Brazil’s unique street art “pixo” – discover a deadly conspiracy. And their actions have brought them to the attention of dangerous elements coming straight from Brazil’s brutal past…

Check out the bios and designs below!

Lis (Lisa)
Red Tag’s protagonist is a young teacher of Writing and Portuguese Language in a São Paulo’s elementary school. She struggled since an early age to become a teacher, studying at night while working during daytime. She believes people have the right to speak out their ideas in order to be part of a democracy and it was because of this that she got in touch with “pixo”, or pichação – a form of street art which became a São Paulo’s trademark.

Lu (Luciana)
Lu sees herself as a true rebel since she left home at an early age and cut relations with her family. Living alone in a small studio apartment in downtown São Paulo, Lu makes ends meet repairing cell phones, and also by carrying out small scams using what she knows most – cheap technology made in China. Lu also loves pichação and met Lis and Leco while tagging a wall, years ago.
