Urban Street Art: The Slums (2 pics)

This large scale mural by Brazilian street artist Raul Zito really struck a chord with me. Combining graffiti with photography, Zito depicts urban life and condemns unbridled consumerism. Completed in Pompéia, São Paulo, it's a stark reminder that people all over the world face hardship, especially during the global economic crisis.

  • Nice piece. Reminds me of some of the stuff Mac and Retna have done.
