Days before the Olympics began in Rio de Janeiro, Brazilian street artist Eduardo Kobra decided to set his own world record for the largest mural created by a single person. The mural, which he calls Las Etnias (The Ethnicities), reaches a total height of 50 feet and measures over 32,000 square feet.
Kobra illustrated five larger-than-life faces from five continents—corresponding to the five rings of the Olympics. After 100 gallons of white paint, 400 gallons of colored paint, 3,500 cans of spray paint, and two grueling months of 12 hour days, the mural brightens up what used to be Rio’s run-down port district.
