Vila Brasilândia is a suburb of São Paulo, Brazil. It’s not a rich area by any standards, but local residents have worked with Spanish art collective Boa Mistura to paint the street in bright colours. A selection of inspiring words are painted in white (beleza, above, means beauty in Portuguese), but can only be viewed when you hit the street from a certain angle. Really beautiful.
