Metrô Bus Nossa Senhora da Paz
Self-taught carioca artist João Lelo, is best known for his urban art interventions and the murals that can be seen brightening Rio and São Paulo's public spaces. Populated by his unmistakable animal figures, a collection of Lelo's work, his own reflections on the values and behaviour of modern society, are gathered under the title Faunopédia in the small space at the back of Ipanema's cult street-wear and graf-mecca Homegrown. Part of a series that he has been developing since mid-2012, the exhibition consist of prints, silk-screens, wood engravings and drawings, as well as sculptures in MDF and recycled materials.
