W tym wyjątkowym projekcie dwaj Duńczycy wprowadzili więcej koloru w życie jednej z najbiedniejszych dzielnic Rio de Janeiro. Jeroen Koolhaas i Dre Urhahn przez 18 miesięcy malowali fasady domów w przekonaniu, że zmieni to także świadomość mieszkańców faveli dając im trochę szczęścia, piękna i nadzieję na lepsze jutro. Ale najważniejsze, jak się wydaje, to zapewnienie możliwości pracy przy malowaniu dla najbiedniejszych mieszkańców finansowane z dotacji przez fundatorów projektu. 

Praça Cantão, Communidade Da Santa Marta, Rio De Janeiro
Using a flexible concept of colourful rays which can easily be expanded, we made a design for the houses around the square and part of the street, including the local Sambaschool. A group of local inhabitants where instructed by trainers from TintasCoral as part of the project “Tudo de Cor para Santa Marta." They where taught everything from different types of paint to safety measures about working on scaffolding. As every wall, every house needs another solution, the painters learn to work with all kinds of material. During the hard month of work they received an education as well as a paycheck. The final result was a huge artwork spanning over 34 houses. It’s our goal to attract enough funds to return to Rio later this year to continue working on the project, as our dream has always been to paint an entire hillside favela. This project Back to Rio could turn the community into one of the greatest community driven artworks of our time.

Rio Cruzeiro, 2008 design by Rob Admiraal. Our second large painting in Vila Cruzeiro was situated on a massive concrete structure, built to protect the hill from mudslides during the rainy season. It was painted with local youth, who learned a craft, while earning money at the same time. The traditional japanese design was made by master tattooist Rob Admiraal. After 8 months of painting, enduring long periods of rain, shootings and police occupation, the 2000m2 artwork was finally finished!:
