Verf je Buurt: Painted Favelas


Spring was too short… Here’s a bit of sun to warm your heart. Dutch artists Dre Urhahn and Jeroen Koolhaas travelled to Rio De Janeiro. They looked at the Favela and imagined a painting. Using the neighbourhood as their canvas, they created a work of art by involving people in the community–who painted, and painted…  The result is mesmerizing. The present project organisation is based in the Netherlands and its aim is “mobilizing people to transform their own communities into social art works of monumental beauty, to beautify and inspire, and combat prejudice and attract positive attention, while offering economic opportunity and economic stimulus.”
