Mosaic is the art of connecting broken pieces to form a new design. I use mosiacs to connect with the countries I live in, practicing and teaching the art to those around me to connect with people and enable others to connect with eachother.

Um Bonde para Santa Teresa 2

My friend Anna van der Heijden and I were part of this incredible community event “Um Bonde para Santa Teresa” in Rio de Janeiro last Saturday, Aug 26. We were most impressed how the event went in true community spirit. The artist who inspired the project Andrea Aires Imbiriba after giving an impressive speech about the spirit of community art, kept in the background and everybody who was willing could mix cement, climb the scaffold and glue a mosaic on the wall, get water for cleaning the mosaic, dance or just watch.

The Bondinhos from Brasilia are in the last panel upper row 2. and 4. from left and 3 row down 2. from left.

Please enjoy a glimpse of the spirit in the video, please click on the link below!
