Alto da Boa Vista
Barra da Tijuca
4th part of the First Rio City Aesthetic Marathon (concept): 1.137 kilometers in 7:21 minutes – completed on Monday, April 11th 2016, in the quarters Ipanema and Copacabana (overall map). The painter Guilherme Telles (*1983) lives in Rio de Janeiro (more about him).
Why did you choose this part to represent Rio de Janeiro at the First Rio City Aesthetic Marathon?
At this place I collect material for my sustainable art nowadays. Here with the fishermen I get the wood to frame my paintings with. And I want to start making paintings out of material that I can find here.
