The picturesque mountain region of Petropolis is the unlikely location for an urban invasion, courtesy of some of Brazil's most celebrated graffiti artists from all over the country. Rather than taking to the walls of the colonial city, artists including Marcelo Ment from Rio de Janeiro and Elton Luis, better known as São Paulo's Shock Maravilha, take over the space of the Centro Cultural Casa Hercílio Esteves in the centre of town, for a showing of previously unseen works that promise to bring the riotous colour and playfulness of street art firmly within the gates of the museum where it can hold its own against the rather more staid works of art usually found there.
