About the tour

I will tell you a little bit about the history of the port area and its role on the slave trade, its art movements, and urban changes. This route is about Brazilian Street Art and its African roots. It highlights works of local artists, archaeological sites and how they’re deeply connected with who we are as Brazilians. Here you will hear about resilience, historic figures that helped to built up our wealth on the fields of music, art, and culture in general. As an ally of local artists and guides for the Black legacy experiences in Rio I curated a street art walk that will offer a great overview of different art exponents from current and past times, pin pointing events that made the docks of Rio a fruitful open air gallery for street artist from all over the world to gather and create. Through urban settings to art on the streets we will hear about dreams that light up and fade. The area of approximately 12.000 m2 filled with colorful murals, is in constant change and it hosts museums, public art, and the Guinness Book spray paint from artist Eduardo Kobra; The 3 main reasons to book your experience Out off the beaten path art hubs; Guided by a local expert guide who is an artist educator; Connect with a local resident who knows many of the artists showcased on the tour
