And Búzios is no different from the rest of the world, where one man’s wall is another man’s blank canvas. Property owners do from time to time have to get out the paint can and paint over a "Dudu loves Angela" graffiti, but more often than not our bare walls are used for signage, they’re used to post menus, they’re used for sloganeering, and sometimes for fabulous, extravagant murals. Here’s a sample . . .
"It's better to be happy than sad.
Happiness is the best thing that exists."
"How many people must die in order for you to clean up your backyard? Dengue kills!"
"Where do you work out?"
"At the library!"
. . . there's some great stuff, kind of in English . . .
. . . there's trompe l'oeil . . .
. . . and lots of fabulous, arty stuff . . .
