What is Mural

Mural Babilônia is a mosaic art. In the first phase, constructed between January and June 2014 it covered approximately 140 square meters of previously grey public contention wall that was built by Prefeitura of Rio de Janeiro to protect the nearby Babilônia and Chapéu Mangueira communities from landsliding.

It is located in Babilônia, Leme, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Firstly it was designed and made by plastic artists from Czech republic X-DOG and PLEBE, with help of dozens of volunteers from around the world. Read here, the story about the before, creation, after and what is next.

After the big blue mosaic was created, we could not stop anymore. More and more interactions and interventions were done. They are presented in different posts on this website, but also here in pdf format, always with brief english and portuguese description.
