If you don't know now I am living in Brazil. Since february. I have been doing lot of stuff. Mostly I have been walking knowing the city.
My first job here was in a project called: Green Wall Favela Art.
My work was to paint a mural on wood. My theme choice was Iemanjá.
Museu de Favela (MUF), Cantagalo, Rio de Janeiro, and Emily Carr University of Art and Design (ECUAD), Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, were working as partners in the creation of Green Walls Favela Art. Sam Carter, Professor Emeritus, ECUAD, attended International Council of Museums (ICOM), UNESCO Conference in Rio, August 2013.
In Rio, April 2014, nine months later Professor Carter returned to Favela Cantagalo to work with a team from MUF and five artists. The theme, Green Art Walls Favela, explores the world of plants, arts and Beauty.
"Artists created large format paintings that included spaces to contain plants. Hence, "Green Walls Favela Art" installations. Statement: The colours, forms, shapes and plants in the art of Green Walls Favela Art, provide an entertaining and deep vision for the favela and its green future."
