File_000Welcome to Rio de Janeiro

As a Brazilian artist, I made this digital work to celebrate the Olympic Games – Rio 2016; this is my contribution to the athletes. I know our country has problems, big problems but the Olympic Games, is after all, a celebration for the athletes, made by them and for them.

Now, Rio de Janeiro belongs to them….

Pollution, zika, violence, accommodation problems… they will overcome all of this for the love of sports.

Good luck to all of them!

Bem-vindo ao Rio de Janeiro

Como artista brasileira, fiz esse desenho digital para celebrar as Olimpíadas – Rio 2016; é minha contribuição aos atletas. Eu sei que o país tem problemas, grandes problemas, mas as Olimpíadas são como uma festa para os atletas, feita por eles e para eles.

Agora, Rio de Janeirio pertence a eles…

Poluição, zika, violência, problemas de acomodação… eles irão superar tudo isso pelo amor aos jogos.

Boa sorte a todos!
