A community art project in São Paulo paints inspiring words that create the illusion they are suspended in mid air.

Spanish art collective Boa Mistura organized a community graffiti project in São Paulo, Brazil, where the artists worked with local people to paint inspiring words on the walls of the winding passages. The interesting designs, when viewed from a certain angle and distance, create the illusion that the messages are floating in the air. They pass on values to the residents with brightly colored paint and bold white words like ‘beleza’ (‘beauty’), ‘amor’ (‘love’), ‘doçura’ (‘sweetness’), ‘firmeza’ (‘steadfastness’) and ‘orgulho’ (‘pride’).
