Brazilian Street Artist Paints World’s Largest Street Mural for the Rio Olympics
Published: Aug 18, 2016

If Street Art was an Olympic sport Brazilian street artist Eduardo Kobra would have been at first place for sure.


Days before the Olympic began Kobra started painting the largest mural.


The mural which he calls Las Etnias (The Ethnicities), reaches a total height of 50 feet and measures over 32,000 square feet.


It can be found in Rio’s port district and it features five faces from five different continents that represent both the five Olympic rings as well as the cultural diversity of the games.


This is what 100 gallons of white paint, 400 gallons of colored paint, 3,500 cans of spray paint, and two tiring months of 12 hour days looks like.
