"Dona Marta"

[Sam Goewey's artwork 'favela' - picture made available by Sam himself]

The above picture shows an artwork of Sam Goewey (from San Carlos, California) that he made inspired by a picture of mine (below). I took that photograph while two Dutch artists, Jeroen Koolhaas & Dre Urhahn were finishing their art project with the local inhabitants of the Santa Marta favela in 2010.

A while ago Sam finished his piece -of which there is a very cool video showing the whole process from preparation all the way to final destination- and I decided to pass by 'Dona Marta' (as the favela is known locally) to see if the design is still intact from two years ago.

This is what the central entrance square looks like right now, from a similar but a bit lower angle (above) and seen from street level (below).
