We are excited to share the news of an upcoming auction organised by Jeroen Koolhaas. Our former colleague and co-founder of the Favela Painting project is offering the opportunity to acquire amazing artworks to support our fundraising efforts for the Favela Mosaico project in Rio. This project is part of the legacy of our collaboration as well as a celebration of the fact that the crew in Rio is now running the project autonomously!

The project is a restoration of a painting we made in 2008 with Master Tattooist Rob Admiraal, depicting a river with carp swimming upstream. To make a mosaic of this scale seemed impossible at first, but the crew in Rio proved otherwise and has already turned a part into the most amazing outdoor artwork imaginable, which you can see on the amazing pictures by Andrew Lenz

The project not only yields beauty, but also offers opportunities. The crew became experts in the field of mosaic, taught by Rio-based ‘Cosmonauta Mosaicos’. So far the foundation has been supporting the work, but your support is needed to keep things going. The proceeds of the auction - as well as all donations to our crowdfunder - will go 100% to the crew in Rio to cover salaries and materials. Please check out www.favelapainting.com to read more about the project. For more information on the upcoming auction go directly to the website of Jeroen Koolhaas: https://jeroenkoolhaas.com/auction

United painting was invited by @tsh_florence to transform their foodcourt. Together with the help of our local partner, Il Cenacolo, and a fantastic group of 12 new United Painting team members, we've managed to cover five houses with these amazing patterns designed by @marijelytskehester #unitedpainting #unitedwepaint #unitedpaintingproject #favelapainting #tsh #hotel #courtyard #colors #patterns #design @unitedpaintingproject

Ironically, we are not using paint for our Santa Helena Project in Rio. We came to the realization that we had to start using more sustainable materials. In cooperation with local experts and architects we developed a new workflow, using pigmented lime stucco and tiles. Materials that are common and locally available #favelapainting #rio #new #material #santahelena #cruzeiro #riocruzeiro #construction

Love 💕 Meeting Y’all & Trying To Holla When I Get Back To Philly 💕🍦
I received a small painting (4 inches x 6 inches) and the back of it made reference to Favela 2009 -- please let me know if you can share anything about the artist or this work. Thank you in advance for your help.
Hey, fellows, I heard the interview on NPR, went to the website and was jazzed about what you're doing. However, when I try to get your site onto my homepage for friends to see, it just shows your'cute little "logo man". I think my friends would get more excited and hopeful with a picture or two. How can I make that happen??
