Graffiti Art in Action on Ladeira Ary Barroso

There was not much to look at. Check for yourself…


Gallery of now:

We have been approached by UPP in Chapéu Mangueira & Babilônia to participate in this project. What started as a kind request to donate 3 sprays ended as a revitalisation of 40 metres of the street.

We helped with the plaster finish of the wall. Then we organized the paint of basic background color. Then Luiz together with us spent some time buying material for the big day. The big day was marked for saturday, august 2nd. We were hoping and praying for the weather to help us and it did. We woke up to a great sunny day.

Soon after 9am graffiti artists from all around Rio de Janeiro metropolitan area started to apear. We had friends coming from Campo Grande, Bangu, Jardim América , Botafogo, Copacabana, Niterói, Rocinha. The big thank you goes to Luiz and his crew, Wark da Rocinha, Miguel FernandezVitor VGSPandroRodrigo Eok, Daniel Frickmann, Tis FzoCrew, and Jean Poul Livrement.

Without you this would not be possible. THANK YOU!!!

Rio Limobike_pickup

Coolest way to/from Airport – Rio Limobike

We were pleased to be able to offer this new and cool way to go to the airport. Rio Limobike seems to be, if you travel alone and with not too much on, an excellent option.

The guys will pick you up…which looks something like this :-)  …
