Artist & Project Highlights

Artists: Bijari

This Brazilian Art and Design Collective has developed projects that pertain to people who have had to flee and are no longer visible in their original communities (and often trying to remain hidden where they have fled).

They’ve created empowering fabric murals painted on fabric with words that describe the history and current conditions of the people living in the Santo Domingo Savio (SDS) community in Medellín, Colombia, and laid them over rooftops. Community members, many of whom had fled from violence in their hometowns to the SDS community, could see these murals while riding Metrocable aerial cable cars.
