Fhero paints a shopping centre in Belo Horizonte

Brazilian Graffiti artist Fhero has just completed his latest large scale mural. This new works are located on the entire facade of the Xavantes Shopping building in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. Fhero worked together with a team of 4 artists, including his crew partner Ed-Mun to realise this intervention.

The artwork itself is a colourful geometric design with a main female character representing the diversity of Brazil. Fhero is recognised for his realistic figurative painting and has created two images: On one side sit two sparrows, common birds of the Brazilian cities. 

And on the other corner, he decided to paint the ethnic diversity of the big urban centers, represented by his wife, graffiti artist Nica.

Painting Nica not only shows his love for his wife but also for Belo Horizonte. For those who do not know, Fhero is from São Paulo, but has been living in Belo Horizonte for more than 10 years. It was there that he built his journey as an artist and it was his love for Nica that brought him to the capital of Minas Gerais.

This is the first building that is wrapped with artwork such as this in Belo Horizonte. The city has plenty of murals, but not of this size and magnitude. 

The project was curated and produced by Publica Art Agency who also curate the Cura Festival in Belo Horizonte.
