When Google announced a further 2000 artworks would be added to its ever growing online collection Google Art Project last week, one of the highlights was a project to capture the evolving trend of urban art and graffiti in Brazil.

‘More than 100 works from walls, doors and galleries in Sao Paulo have been photographed and will be included in the Art Project. The pieces were chosen by a group of journalists, artists and graffiti experts and include artists such as Speto, Kobra and Space Invader, as well as images of Sao Paulo’s most famous building-size murals,’ wrote Google Art Project staffer Shahina Rahman on the company’s official blog.
