This is probably what you think of when you hear the term graffiti.
But the Brazilian artists who are here in the Netherlands think bigger.
-How high are we going? 25 metres, if we go all the way to the top.
-How long do you spend up here per day? 5-7 hours.
-Why have Brazilian artists been flown in to the Netherlands to paint graffiti?
We were inspired by Brazil...
because there, local councils and politicians...
are more tolerant of graffiti and colourful art in public spaces.
We would also like to see...
more art in public spaces in the Netherlands, which is why we hired these Brazilian artists.
I really like it. I love to take part in projects...
which give art to communities and people...
on a big scale and that have a major impact.
