Blow up favela by Jeroen Koolhaas

I should also mention to UNIT friend Jeroen Koolhaas is here in Tokyo looking for galleries to exhibit an installation that he’s made to explain/publicize “Favela Painting” a project he’s doing with another friend Dre Urhahn.

Check out their site for more info, but the basic premise is to paint an entire section of Rio slum as a single, recognizable picture to help alter the image of favelas – notorious, but popular informal communities that are often left off Brazil’s maps and political agenda.
