What’s this?

Aristic duo Jeroen Koolhaas and Dre Urhahn, working with local youths, repainted the buildings surrounding a square in this poor Rio de Janeiro neighborhood with a striking, multi-color ray design. The project took a month, with the local workers receiving an education in painting craft (“As every wall, every house needs another solution, the painters learn to work with all kinds of material.”) as well as a paycheck.
