“Pearls” of Brazilian street art

In Brazilian cities it’s possible to find real “pearls” of street art. And, although wandering though yards and narrow streets can be dangerous, some pieces of art we’ve found are really worth being discovered. Especially if you are accompanied by a local friend : ) These’re pieces of the capital of the state Bahia, Salvador.

Cute Kuza lives on a wall of a coastal road in Salvador.

Mosaic is not rare on walls of the city.

Full car of love : )

Cheerful road creatures. They live on a market on the square 2 de Julio too.

Social art: If a field is not planted, the city doesn’t dine.

This guy is a famous street artists in Salvador. Don’t remember his name, I guess the surname is Eden. But I really like his works.

Had an idea that someone tried to copy the previous artist…

This cool cow stays in Pelorinho, on Praca da Se.

Sculpture in a park of MAM (Museo de Arte Moderna).

People come to MAM park for rest. View on a sunset is one of the best in Salvador there. And every Saturday jazz concerts are held.

My favourite guy : ) The note under the sculpture says: “Abra├žo” – “I hug you”. If to look more thoroughly, he doesn’t desire just to hug, but to kiss too : )
After 20 minuted spent there with this hospitable creature, I started to feel that he’s beautiful too in his own way…

    People watch TV too much…

    • Well… this is what I know from my friends, who are locals and who lived in Brazil the whole life. Moreover, during my stay (6 months) one of them was beaten and robbed. Another told me how he and his guest were attacked. All of this in the centre.
      Arrestao and robberies during a strike were also a very real thing. So I think my opinion has a more that solid base.
