French photographer Philippe Echaroux projects portraits of Brazil’s Suruí tribe onto the Amazon rainforest in his latest project “The Blood Forest”. Invited by chief Almir Surui Narayamoga to help draw attention to the issue of deforestation, Echaroux highlights members of the tribe that have been working to replant and protect their section of the forest. See more images below or in display at the Taglialatella gallery in Paris November 10 – December 15.
My talented buddy INSA just created the world’s largest animated GIF, with the help of a team of painters, and a satellite in space. The mural in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, is part of his “GIF-ITI” series, an on-going project in which he paints murals several times over to create frames of animation. As you can see in the video below, working at this scale is no easy task!

The Brazilian twin duo known as Os Gemeos are leaving a beautiful mark on Vancouver, painting six industrial Ocean Concrete silos next to the art school I graduated from. The finished mural will measure a total of 7200 square meters (23,500 square feet) making it the pairs’ largest mural to date (and their first in Canada).
The project is part of the Vancouver Biennale which has just launched an IndieGoGo to raise money to pay for the public art. The artists have donated their time, and all money raised will go towards paying for the materials and trip expenses for the artists.
I’m happy to see our city of glass finally getting some much needed colour! If you live in Vancouver, and you want to see more things like this, consider giving a few dollars to the IndieGoGo: HERE.
