Etnias Graffiti in Rio

Meaning

Painted as a homage to all 5 continents when Brazil held the Olympics, representing its rings and tells a story of peace and love between the inhabitants of Earth. It gave a new look to Rio’s portuary region, that, on Eduardo’s opinion, can become an open sky gallery.

Guinness World Records

It was recognized by Guinness World Records as the biggest graffiti work in the world thanks to Kobra’s fans, that called Guiness attention to the work.
