Coincidicing with Rio’s 2016 Olympic Games, Brazilian artist Eduardo Kobra painted a 190-meter long wall in the city’s former port area. Entitled ‘Etnias’, the 3,000 square meters large mural shows five faces from five continents, relating to the olympic rings. It took two months Kobra and his team to complete the painting. It became a part of ‘Olympic Boulevard’, a three kilometer alley that includes big screens and live music.
I know it’s a long time since graffiti became art, but this is another level of expertise altogether. Amazing – it looks like the subjects will come off the wall and start walking among us. Thanks for the share!
