There’s a large-scale street art experiment taking place in both Sao Paolo and Rio de Janeiro. Large wall based depictions of ordinary people are now being displted on walls and buildings in both cities, using graffiti, photographic and stencil techniques.
For instance, in the North zone of Rio twenty-seven children from a local school, Baron Macahubas, are now shown in an innovative spray and graffiti montage. In addition, many people have been immortalised on a massive 300 metre wall on Avenida Martin Luther King.
In Sao Paolo, bus passengers are shown in large scale stencil and paint by artist ‘Ozi’ at the Urban Terminal Vila Nova, Cachoeirinha.
