Manguinhos Mural – This´s a big mural in a super conflictive area here in Rio de Janeiro.
This area is quite dangerous, while I was painting there I saw cars being stolen, shootings between police and drug dealers, crack addicts stealing people…
Super tense atmosphere… But this neighbourhood has a lot of good people living there as well, with their childrens… So I decided to paint a child´s dream.. playing and being happy.
The words that I wrote are from a Brazilian poet (Mario Quintana) and makes a wordplay that translated, it´s not that much fun… but it´s something like “The will pass, I´ll be a Bird”
Characters – It´s been a while since I started to make characters made of wood and hang them at the streets, like my birds. I have a good time doing it, especially when I interact with local people and make their own characters…
