Graffiti tends to get a bad rep as many see it as destruction of property, however it can often be thought-provoking and inspiring as one Brazilian street artist proves. 'L7m '(Luis Seven Martins) has been painting vivid birds on the streets of Brazil and it does not appear as though anyone is complaining.
The Brazilian street artist has used some experimental tools and techniques creating his wall paintings including china ink, latex, pastel, acrylics and the graffiti staple -- spray paint. He also uses real bird feathers in order to stencil parts of his art, which he says is inspired by "the revolt by human sorrow, the beauty of life, the city's disarray, its neglect and surroundings".
The powerful message of his art along with the bright, chaotic designs of the birds are certainly brightening up these areas.
