Urban art: Balneário Camboriú is about to receive the tallest graffiti in Brazil

Balneário Camboriú is about to receive the tallest graffiti in Brazil. The open-air mega mural signed by the Macanese artist Marlon Musk will occupy a strip of the side wall of the luxury skyscraper Edifício Cosmos with 111.77 meters high and 5.54 meters wide, totaling an area of 619.20 m².

The work, which will also be among the tallest in the world, has been underway since Feb. 17 and should be completed by the end of the month.

The mural installation is part of the #cidadeincomparável project, carried out by the construction company Embraed in partnership with the Open Street Gallery movement.

The project, which is in its third action – the others were the revitalization of the Encanto belvedere in Itapema, and the Fire Department building, in Balneário Camboriú – aims at enhancing the beauties of the Santa Catarina coast and, at the same time, creating a new atmosphere for those who live in the city, besides expanding the access to art and culture.

Inspired by the city’s natural beauty, the graffiti will bring natural elements such as the sun and Adam’s rib leaves.

“Balneário Camboriú is a city full of natural beauty and, as it is a building facing the sea, I sought to highlight the sun.”

“The sun gives the tone to the whole mural, with its rays that permeate the leaves of Adam’s rib. I chose this plant for its symmetry and meaning,” Muk details in a press release.
