After recently completing a portrait of the Brazilian writer Clarice Lispector (covered)in collaboration with Sliks, the artist Jimmy C spent the last few days working on different murals in Brazil with the support of Instagrafite. The portrait of Clarice Lispector can be found on Rua Felipe de Alacova, Brazil.
In the first wall Jimmy C painted a female portrait with his trademark circular forms. The woman looks like she could be of Brazilian or African origin, whilst the use of yellow and green may also refer to the colours of Brazil. ‘Woman with spheres’ can be found at the corner of Rua Fidalga and Inacio pereira da rocha, Sao Paulo.
The artist also completed a piece titled Street Heart that can be found on Rua Fidalga, Sao Paulo using his signature style.
Jimmy finally travelled to Rio, continuing to spread the message of love with one of his painted hearts. This one is a heart of hearts, made up of layers of small colourful hearts. Jimmy worked with the local Rio artist Bruno Big who painted his trademark flower like forms on each side, lending further colour and energy to the heart. ‘Heart in Rio’ can be found on Favela do Vidigal, Leblon, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
