In Rio de Janeiro, the street art is ubiquitous. It exists in all corners of the city from the favela to upper class neighbourhoods, from residential to institutional. It is bold in scale and aesthetics, and is anything but graffiti. In March 2009, the Brazilian government passed law 706/07 which decriminalizes street art.
“Brazilian graffiti art is considered among the most significant strand[s] of a global urban art movement, and its diversity defies the increasing homogeneity of world graffiti.” – Design Week
