Streets: Titi Freak / Art Rua (Rio de Janeiro)

Last week, as part of the festivities surrounding the fifth annual ArtRua fair, held in the Centro Cultural Ação da Cidadania in Rio de Janeiro, local artists were invited in to paint some large panels for the fairgoers to enjoy. As one of the chosen artists, Titi Freak painted a man posed upside down with his usual style and technique and entitled it “A queda do ego” or “The fall of the ego.” Take a look at more photos below… Discuss Titi Freak here.
