These sculptures really cheer me up when i was in the bad mood today!
Must check the cool sculptural work is created from skateboard pieces, wood found on Rio's many beaches or from late night trash runs... These are work of Rio De Janeiro artist Marcelo Macedo (MACK) whose artistic life began through skateboarding and graffiti.
"Rio is a world famous tourist city, Copacabana, Ipanema, The Christ, etc etc etc. The city is fantastic, with all of its nature, history, and colonial and modern Brazilian architecture mixed together. Their is a large socio-economic gap in Rio, a gap between the rich and the poor, making a lot of young people express themselves via street art." [ via fecalface ]
