Perhaps these 2 hummingbirds are on love? Well I’m in love with them!
The previous São Paulo post had hummingbirds, as well. However, they are different paintings that appear to be by the same artist.
Luv, luv this bit!
Below is a piece from a globally famous street artist, Eduardo Kobra.
I adore the humor revealed in the series of photos Carolee took of this apparent King.
Brazilian artist Paulo Ito s very political with his work. A mural he did of a starving child eating a soccer ball during the The World Cup went viral. Click on the pic below to read a news article on it!
Carolee says: “Also, in the picture of the mouse and the emperor, it’s kind of hard to see in the photo but the threads in the emperor’s coat are actually real!”
“I often walked down this alley when I lived in Sao Paulo. It fostered art installations, capoeira performances, concerts, children playing, people walking their dogs.”
⭐️ THANK YOU CAROLEE ⭐️
Carolee Croft is a Canadian writer who had been living in São Paulo, Brazil. She has now returned to Edmonton, Canada. She has just released a new novel Ariella’s Rebellion.
Carolee writes novels that are in her own words “I hope not too naughty for your audience”. I find that a tad endearing coming from an admitted fan of Spongebob. You can find her books on Carolee’s Books on Amazon
“The purple-haired sailor was always visible from my window. I will miss her and Brazil!”
“The 3D art is from an alley that’s located at the site of an underground river, Agua Preto, and hosts a community of artists and an environmental group that would like to see the river resurfaced.”

Yeah, and all the way from Brazil!
this is a great work of art…you have beautiful colors here!!!
The colors are wonderful! So glad you got tos see this fab art from Brazil!
The popping art would brighten any street!
This is the beauty of street art. I live in the city’s core. It is old, and lots of cement… very grey. Yet, every day is brighter with art everywhere!

Thanks for posting, Resa, and for your knowledgeable commentary. I had no idea Paulo Ito was such a famous artist. Now I wish I could have seen that mural of the child with the soccer ball while I was in Brazil.
And I’m in love with those hummingbirds too! xoxoxo
Ah, the graffiti bug has bitten you! Used to be the street art was just neat. Now, I have gained an interest in the artists, as well! There’s got to be some neat street art where you are. I can hardly wait for spring to hit Canada! xoxoxo
Reblogged this on Carolee Croft and commented:
The lady or the tiger? Why choose when you can have both! And some beautiful hummingbirds too… Many thanks to Resa for posting my final collection of graffiti and street art photos from Brazil.
Wow! That is all I can say, Resa!! You packed quite a lot in this post! Just wow!! Amazing art you found. Perhaps if all the artists in the world would go all out and paint, and sing, and take pictures, and make music, and just all out create BEAUTY, this world would change! Much Love to you, dear friend!! 💖💖💖
I totally agree with your sentiment, Amy! MAKE ART NOT WAR, as many of my friends have said! 🦄💙🦄
That political art with the king and his shirt coming undone is something else all right! Great mix of art and political statement. It’s great to see Carolee back here, Resa!
Of course you would pick up and comment on any deeper meanings. 😀
Really, this is where graffiti came from: mene mene tekel upharson, political messages in shapes of Che Guevara, words of rebellion, intellectual challenge, ancient Italian frescos. Of course some of these may have been defacing private property.
Now, we have young scribblers, writing their scribble over and over, defacing private property.
So, enter street art, legal, usually less provocative, always interesting or at least pleasing to the eye and cheering up a drab urban environment. xo
Naughty King, is all I can say!! 🙂
Great finds here, Carolee; Brazil is soooo colourful. I can imagine your stay must have been wonderful.
What a great collection, Resa; and the 3D art is special too.. 🙂
You’re kind of like 3D art…. special, too! xoxoxo
And YOU 😀 😀 😀
Thanks, Carolyn. I did have an amazing stay in Brazil, exploring the jungle, and then the concrete jungle of the city.
You’ve whetted my appetite! I’ve never contemplated going to Brazil, however, never say never! 🙂
These are amazing photo’s each and every one. Such amazing art, I can’t imagine what it must be like to be there looking up. The Hummingbirds blew me away. Once again a gorgeous post of what’s out there that without you we would miss! ❤
The hummingbirds are a thing of beauty! It truly is a joy to see a mural or fab piece of street art in person.
Very excited about my ATHENA graffiti gown for Art Gowns/tandem post w/ Aq/U! I’ve borrowed a lot from the artists, As a matter of fact, I thought I was copying them. Interesting how art becomes unique to an artist. ❤
Every artist has their own style. It’s wonderful. ♥️
Crazy how the wrong Gravatar pic came out for my previous comment to your comment. I swear that there are WP ghosts!
WP seems to be having problems. I am seeing some of the blogs I follow dropping from my notifications and I have to refollow , the same thing is probably happening to me. Aghhh!
Awesome… Love the political twists as well. ((Back from a vacation, waving and catching up)). Sending love, Resa & Carolee. Happy weekend ahead 🙂
Yeah, there is still some political street art around. 😀 I think Sath has done a fab job in fusing the pleasantries of street art and murals with political ideas. I’ll be doing a post on him, again, soon.
Waving back! 😀 xo
Good to hear from you, Aqui! 🙂 Much love to you!

They are unique! Thank you for the visit!
Absolutely wonderful. Excellent street art. It would be hard to pick a favorite but I love the tiger and the woman’s face.
That is my fave, too! LOL! 😀
Every single one of these wonderful works are great Resa, I have no favorite they are all equal, and it’s too hard to choose! 😉
I surely agree with that 😀
A big shout out to Carolee Croft. Art is beautiful and these beautiful art shines with glory. 🙂
I’m thrilled to have featured street art from São Paulo!!!!! TY Carolee!
🙂 This makes me happy that your happy. 🙂 By the way, I’m posting something new tomorrow. Apologies for my absence. 🙂
Oh gosh, I kind of missed Trumps ass before…so funny! and a little gross. 🙂
Hope the mouse survived! 😀
That’s hysterical. I’d be laughing if I didn’t hold him in such contempt , I don’t mean the moude! 😏
Wonderful series and I can’t get over the political tugs.
