Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud,
Under the bludgeoning of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find me, unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
Strong people don’t put others down… they lift them up.– Michael P. Watson
Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.– Plato

As usual with Christian Guemy, he delivers a beautiful stencilled portrait of a couple featuring his signature vibrant palette of colours combined with abstract shapes.

Brazilian street artist Eduardo Kobra has just finished his tribute to the Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer, who passed away last december at the age of 104.
The new mural is 52 meters tall, 16 meters wide and it covers the entire side of a skyscraper on Paulista Avenue, one of Sao Paulo’s busiest streets.
The work started on January 14th and since then, Kobra and four other artists from his team have been working on the painting around 6 hours a day to finish all the details.
The artwork was inspired by Niemeyer’s architecture and among the colorful forms the viewer will find that some of them were based on Niemeyer’s works.
