Favela painting | Haas & Hahn

Some talented people don’t need much to turn “public urban spaces in communities facing social difficulties into monumental works of art.” Dutch artists’ Haas & Hahn (Jeroen Koolhaas and dre Urhahn) only need paint buckets! “The duo’s artistic venture offers local youth education and job opportunities, while beautifying their community and making it a more pleasant place to live. Together with these local youth, koolhaas and urhahn have created striking facades which have become iconic works of art within rio’s urban landscape.”
