Artistic duo Haas and Hahn have been painting the town... quite literaly! They have been working on their favela paintings in Rio since 2006 (above images are past work) and their latest work on "O'Morro" is my favorite so far!!

The above is a before image of the favelas... just another shanty town in brazil, until......


The project is currently covering 34 houses and the 7,000 meters of slum has become a monument to the community.

Their plan is to raise enough funds to continue the project and hopefully cover the ENTIRE HILLSIDE!!! Just another reason Rio is on my travel hit list...
