Paint the town red, blue, yellow, green......

I found these brilliant and striking images by The Favela Painting Project. The Favela Painting Project creates striking artworks, collaborating with local people, in the slums of Rio de Janeiro. To encourage, learning and making art in their enviroment. These particular images are from the Santa Marta community. The artwork spanned over a total of 34 houses! Hoping to raise more funds for the future, they would love to continue to paint more, and their dream is to paint an entire hillside favela. Go to The Favela Painting Project to find out more.

  1. Plus there is a favela project at the South Bank Centre http://www.southbankcentre.co.uk/find/hayward-gallery-and-visual-arts/visual-arts/tickets/project-morrinho-southbank-centre-favela-1000045 (a bit closer to home but probably not as colourful!)
