Hey guys! I think this is my last post for the semester!
I found out about this amazing street artist Eduardo Kobra who does inspiring installations of murals on the streets of world wide cities in Poland, Sweden, Italy, etc. These pieces are huge and takes a lot of work because they require a lift to paint such huge walls.
His color spectrum makes him such a innovating graphic artist while taking his pieces to a whole new level by installing them into the streets of famous cities. He grew up as a struggling artist living in a poor neighborhood in San Paulo and decided to join a graffiti crew instead. As an artist, he is so inspiring because he was always told to get a “regular” job to earn money instead of “wasting” his time doing street art. This motivated him to continue his work to prove them wrong and ended up becoming a famous traveling artist where people would stop to watch him install his pieces and news networks would interview him about it.
You guys out there who believe in your work and people are telling you otherwise, check this wonderful artist out!

What do you guys think? How does creating a mural affect the people surrounding the piece?
