Street Art in Rio De Janeiro

The streets of Rio are filled with colorful art. Some recall comics style, others show an influence of Japanese Anime. There is so much Variety and character to these, much more than just graffiti, but murals, tributes, and city beautification.


Even candy is presented in an artistic way. These look like mosaics!

These colorful paintings decorate the beach at Ipanema.

These were decorating the walls in Leblon.

 

These hip skater pictures of Frida Kahlo were on the street in Porto Seguro. I noticed that Frida is a bit of a folk hero here.

Images we might consider “racist caricatures” were popular in tourist shops here.

These images decorate hotels and airports. You can see a romanticization of Native Brazilians and African people.

Portraits of Brazilians

In my travels I made a few drawings of locals and gave them away.

This was a waitress at a restaurant in Natal.

These were guests at a wedding.
