Favela Paintings By Haas & Hahn

posted in: Style & Culture | 13


Brazilian art duo, Hass & Hahn brighten up the Santa Marta community in Rio with vivid colors and acute angles. After filming a documentary about hip hop and graffiti in Brazil, they were inspired to bring outrageous works to unexpected places. Their latest journey has taken them to Santa Marta, where they worked with the locals to transform the neighborhood into a highly saturated rainbow of colors. Haas & Hahn have some grand ideas for the future. Find more information and see past projects on their website, favelapainting.com
