A year ago we were working in Gagalingin, a slum in the north of Manila, Philippines. Here’s a short documentary of our project there:
2 years ago we painted 16 different words on 16 different houses. This time the people of Mariscal Sucre chose one word for us to paint on 16 houses.
“Peace” is a word that everyone here agrees with, whether it be in the neighbourhood itself, or in the rest of Bogota, on the other side of the ring road.
We chose the bridge that crosses the ring road as the point of view to see the whole mural. This bridge links the community with the rest of Bogota and hundreds of people walk across it each day. Hopefully people from other parts of the city will also want to stand on the bridge to look at the art, and even cross the bridge to visit an isolated yet very warm community.
Thanks to everyone who helped us make this possible and special thanks to the Universidad de la Javeriana and its volunteers.
We’ve been laying colours with the help of locals and volunteers from the Javeriana university.
We’re back in Bogota, exactly 2 years after our project in the neighbourhood “UPZ90”. It’s the first time that we’re back in a community we have previously painted in. Exciting news to come!
