"We all fear death and question our place in the universe. The artist’s job is not to succumb to despair, but to find an antidote for the emptiness of existence." -Midnight in Paris, 2011 (dir. Woody Allen)
Brazilian street artist Eduardo Kobra has graced the entire side of a skyscraper on the bustling street of Paulista Avenue in São Paulo with a 52 meter tall polychromatic portrait of renowned brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer, who passed away in December of 2012 at the age of 104. Kobra began work on the mural on the 14th of January, 2013 and since then has solicited the help of four other artists from his team to complete the colossal artwork.
