IMG_6344

Brazilian street artist Eduardo Kobra delivers his mural tributes in a kaleidoscope of colors. His muses have ranged from architects to classic historical moments — his rendition of The Kiss was the most liked and reblogged post ever in the history of HAHA — it clocked in at 9,900. The newest of which has popped up in São Paulo, Brazil. The wall, entitled as “Genial is riding a bike”,  is 13 meters high by 7 meters large and the painting shows Albert Einstein riding a bicycle. On the front of the bicycle, Kobra has inserted his own version of the famous Einstein formula (E=MC2) which could be translated as: Love= Me + you2 .

Eduardo Kobra’s Niemeyer Tribute

Brazilian street artist Eduardo Kobra is back with his current mural work – a tribute to the Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer, who passed away last december at the age of 104. The new mural is 52 meters tall, 16 meters wide and it covers the entire side of a skyscraper on Paulista Avenue, one of Sao Paulo’s busiest streets. The mural was inspired by Niemeyer’s architecture and among the colorful forms the viewer will find that some of them were based on Niemeyer’s works.
