Transform an Environment / Transform a Community

This urban art project by Boamistura has transformed both the environment and the community in the slums of Brazil. The community was directly involved in this project, painting the backstreets and alleyways, using art as a tool for change. The words that are painted are also community building – ‘pride’ (orgulho), ‘beauty’ (beleza), ‘sweetness’ (doçura), ‘firmness’ (firmeza), and ‘love’ (amor).
