Brazilian street artist Eduardo Kobra recently completed this gigantic 170 ft mural on Paulista Avenue, one of Sao Paulo’s busiest streets. The colourful piece is a tribute to Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer, who passed away last December at the age of 104. Kobra and a team of four other artists worked six hours a day to complete the mural, and some of the colorful forms are based on Niemeyer’s works. Photographer Alan Teixeira is on the scene with these beautiful shots.
