Colouring up the favelas of Rio de Janeiro

The Favela Painting project started in the slums of Rio de Janeiro after documentary filmmakers Haas&Hahn completed an assignment filming a hip-hop film and decided to brighten up the rundown shanty town in the process. The result is a stunning rainbow patterned retouch of the neighbourhood, which has since expanded in scope to employ locals to paint the buildings.
