Graffiti

“The work of Boa Mistura is all about the love of graffiti, colour and life. This group of 5 Spanish artists is, as the name says, a good mixture. Arkoh, Derko, Pahg, Purone and Rdick have developed their work in different fields, applying both a diversity of styles and the different views of each member. Boa Mistura represents a mixture of perspectives which complement, influence and mix themselves together in order to create something better. From graffiti and mural painting, to graphic design and illustration, Boa Mistura want to give the world its colour back. 5 heads, 10 hands, just one heart” (From Boa Mistura ).

The picture above and  the one on the right belong to the project “Luz nas vielas” , in which they transformed the winding streets of the favelas in Sao Paulo sharing the work with their inhabitants.

These other two belong to “Diamond Inside”, African-inspired murals with constructive messages to inspire the changing society in Cape Town, South Africa.
