Brazilian street artist Eduardo Kobra is currently finishing his tribute to
the Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer, who passed away last december at
the age of 104. The new mural is 52 meters tall, 16 meters wide and it
covers the entire side of a skyscraper on Paulista Avenue, one of Sao
Paulo’s busiest streets.
The work started on January 14th and since then, Kobra and four other
artists from his team have been working on the painting around 6 hours a
day to finish all the details.
The artwork was inspired by Niemeyer’s architecture and among the colorful
forms the viewer will find that some of them were based on Niemeyer’s works.
The credits of the pictures shall be given to the brazilian photographer
