There have been a lot of incredible dedications to the late Oscar Niemeyer since his death in December 2012. We posted about Wallpaper magazine’s feature last week and we’re excited to share the recent mural by artist Eduardo Kobra. Kobra completed a 180-foot, colorful art work of Niemeyer in the financial district of Sao Paulo. For more on this, click here (photo courtesy of Design Taxi).

Famed Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer passed away on December 5, 2012 at the age of 104. He was a huge inspiration to the SUSHISAMBA brand. Upon learning of his death, our Founder and CEO of SUSHISAMBA and brainchild of GGG, Shimon Bokovza, reflected on his incredible influence, “Niemeyer captures the essence of Brazil in his work: imagination, freedom of expression and the new frontier. His architectural wealth is only matched by the beauty of the Amazon. He has influenced everything that we do from color palette to architecture. His projects – brilliant and monumental – will continue to inspire us for years.” In its recent addition, Wallpaper* magazine included a beautiful 28-page tribute to Niemeyer and his incredible work. We highly recommend picking up a copy. Click here for more information. (pictures below courtesy of Wallpaper* online).

Brooklyn Street Art recently posted a moving article on artist Jetsonorama’s visit to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. While in Rio, Jetsonorama went to Rocinha, “one of the largest slums in the world,” where he learned about the Green My Favela initiative and installed a symbolic mural. For more on this, visit Brooklyn Street Art’s website. (photo courtesy of BK Street Art)

We like how calculating (no pun intended) Nihalani was in searching out art space in New York City. Photo below courtesy of UNURTH Street Art.

Graffiti Gone Global veteran, Marc Fornes, recently collaborated with Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama on a Louis Vuitton pop-up store in London’s Selfridges. Kusama’s signature red dots mesh well with Fornes’ architectural structure, or “very first carbon fiber self supported shell.” Click on the following link to watch a video of the store’s amazing transformation: http://bit.ly/QCJrE1.
