A collective of Spanish graffiti artists called Boa Mistura, organized a participatory urban art
project in the streets of São Paulo, Brazil. The self described “Graffiti Rockers” refaced the winding alleyways of the Vila Brâsilandia Favela (‘shanty town’) with bright colors and 3-dimensional murals with the help of local children.

Recently featured on Fubiz, the paintings are special not only for their colorful presentation, but for the obvious sense of community they symbolize. Street Art can be a clandestine affair, dangerous not only due to architectural hurdles but local authorities. In Vila Brâsilandia, little ones are out in the sun, painting their Favela with words of hope.
