Favela Painting

“A project that aims at transforming favela communities in Rio de Janeiro into landmarks and inspirational monuments.”

“Initiated and organized by the Dutch design duo Haas&Hahn, the Favela Painting project aims at transforming favela communities in Rio de Janeiro into landmarks and inspirational monuments. Inhabitants are encouraged and employed by Haas&Hahn to paint their own neighbourhoods and houses according to pre-arranged patterns provided by the two designers. The eye-catching project took off in 2007 with a mural in Rio’s notorious favela and since then, it has grown in scale and ambition.”
