Las Etnias - Eduardo Kobra
The HIYA Gallery series places and works legendaries of street art present you a fresco of 2016 entitled "Las Etnias" ("The ethnic groups") and produced by Eduardo Kobra.
The work was produced by Brazilian artist Eduardo Kobra just days before the start of the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. He wanted to set his own world record for the largest mural painted by one person. The fresco, which he named "Las Etnias" ("The Ethnicities"), reaches a total height of 15 meters and measures over 2787 square meters. The subject of the work represents five faces from five different continents that evoke both the five Olympic rings and the cultural diversity of the games.
Kobra worked on this artwork for two months and used roughly 380 liters of white paint, 1450 liters of colored paint and 3500 spray cans.
