favelas of rio de janeiro

Living in Rocinha as a gringo, (foreigner), I never felt uncomfortable, the love, embrace and inclusion that I received from the community was something I never felt amongst my fellow countrymen and friends back home in the UK.
Favela Painting, a community-driven project that turns hillside slums into artworks of epic scale is giving power back to the community. And after several years of planning, Favel Painting is back with an even bigger project: to paint an entire favela.
