Luz Nas Vielas: Boa Mistura
In the North of São Paulo, the favela of Vila Brasilândia has been given a multicolor metamorphosis by art/design collective Boa Mistura. As part of the ongoing project ‘Luz Nas Vielas’ — first initiated back in 2012 — the urban works seek to empower neighborhoods and connect residents through strategically scattered paintings across alleys in Brazil. When viewed from a specific angle and distance, the anamorphic paintings have spelled out words that describe the daily life of the residents, like beauty, pride, strength, and love. Now, Boa Mistura returns to the favela to add two more written works to the landscape.
