Tremendous, and tremendously viral, piece of political graffiti on a school wall in Brazil ahead of the World Cup. Protests there over government spending priorities for both the World Cup and for the 2016 Olympics have escalated sharply in recent weeks, but this image by Paulo Ito seems to have really focused the central argument of the protesters.
The LA Times has a nice piece about this work here: http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/arts/la-et-cm-world-cup-art-20140527-story.html?track=lat-email-latimesentertainment

Great story about long-time Brazilian street artist Bel Borba and his month-long public art residency in NYC, where he’s finding lots of raw material for inspiration.
Now I’m interested in the documentary about Borba that’s scheduled to open next month. Should be very interesting when it spreads to the rest of the country from New York later this year.
Love this art project sponsored by a Brazilian phone company in Sao Paulo, matching 100 artists with 100 groovily shaped booths. It’d be cool to have something like it in Los Angeles, except we don’t, ahem, seem to have phone booths anymore. Flavorpill has a slide show of ten of the best resulting projects.
