Brazilian street artist Eduardo Kobra is out to set a world record during this year’s Rio Olympics, but it’s not related to sports — unless you consider hours and hours of painting an athletic feat (which, perhaps, you should).
The artist is painting a huge, colourful mural called “Etnias,” or “Ethnicities” in Rio de Janeiro, depicting the faces of indigenous people from five different continents. Kobra is hoping his mural will be deemed the largest ever designed by one artist. Guinness has yet to properly adjudicate that his artwork has broken the world record, but it’s breathtaking and nearly twice the size of the mural that currently holds the record.
Take a look.
