C215 in Diadema, Sao Paulo

Posted on October 31, 2008 Under Art

While the Brazilian street art invasion continues to migrate to the farthest walls of the world, its home territory is getting action from outside street artists as well. A few months ago Parisian stencil artist C215 joined up with the non-profit group Children At Risk Foundation, which gives kids in Sao Paulo’s Diadema favela a place and program to spend their time productively. He registers the experience in a neat, fresh video that follows him around the shantytown, adding 2-D faces and color. Anyone want to take bets that Banksy’s next piece will be found behind a dumpster somewhere in Brazil?
