Some weeks ago I informed you about the brilliant anamorphic mural paintings by Spanish Boa Mistura crew, now they published the corresponding video documentary!
Boa Mistura’s project Luz Nas Vielas has been carried out in Vila Brasilândia, São Paulo, during January 2012. The project is part of the Crossroads series: Boa Mistura’s participative urban art interventions to modify rundown communities using art as a tool for change and inspiration. Between the 4th and 16th of January BOA MISTURA had the opportunity to live in Brasilândia, hosted by the Gonçalves family, having this way direct contact with the community. After preliminary studies and analysis, the defined framework are the narrow and winding streets that connects the urban net, known as Vielas and Becos. The dialogue with residents and their active participation has been decisive for the Project. Beleza, Firmeza, Amor, Docura andOrgulho are the concepts chosen by the collective for the interventions.
Sponsored by the Spainish Embassy in Brazil and in collaboration with Singapore Airlines, Montana Colors and the Spanish Cultural Center in São Paulo, this project shows how art is able to connect people from all over the globe, great!
