Alto da Boa Vista
Barra da Tijuca
13th part of the First Rio City Aesthetic Marathon (concept): 0.749 kilometers in 9:49 minutes – completed on Wednesday, April 13th 2016, in the quarter Santa Teresa (overall map). The artist J. Batista (*1981) 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?
Because of my close emotional connection to this quarter. I grew up here, with all values. My life is related with the places we have just gone past. I have friends here for 30 years. Here I learnt everything I know about life. I would change it for nothing else. Moreover, it is a nice part of town and has this marvellous view.
