São Paulo’s Metropolitan Railway Company pays homage to Michael Jackson by inviting local graffiti artists to display their interpretation of the superstar in five stations throughout the city.

It’s been a while since the sudden death of the “King of Pop”, but he’s still being constantly remembered throughout the globe – especially inn São Paulo.

After some strange attempts of paying tribute to Michael Jackson, such as a politician who proposed renaming Ibirapuera Park (one of the city’s dearest symbols) after the singer, it seems that São Paulo’s Metropolitan Railway Company (CPTM) got it right by inviting six talented graffiti artists to display their interpretation of the superstar in five train stations throughout the city. Artwork from Bonga, Nossa, Dingos, Mauro, Graphis and Binho will be displayed in the Pirituba, Mooca, Carapicuíba, Osasco and Brás stations for 2 months.
