Favela Painting Project in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This public artwork project began in 2010 as a collaboration between Dutch artists Jeroen Koolhaas and Dre Urhahn of Haas&Hahn and a local team in Rio de Janeiro’s Santa Marta favela, a Brazilian slum or shantytown. Since then, Haas&Hahn have spread their movement across the world, transforming a dilapidated area in North Philadelphia and working with communities in Curaçao and elsewhere to alter depressed public spaces in ways that attract positive attention and economic impulses.

This project is a collaboration of Favela Painting & Let's Color Project; it turned 34 houses (7,000 sq meters) of hillside favela into a huge community art project. For the month of painting, community members 'received an education as well as a paycheck'. The goal is to raise enough money to paint the entire hillside. Artists: Jeroen Koolhaas + Dre Urhahn, Favela Painting Location: Santa Marta, Rio de Janeiro

The "Cristo Redentor" in my place of birth, Rio de Janeiro. I miss Brazil and wonder what life would've been like if I had stayed, but I wouldn't trade my life for the world.
