    Artist Creates Record-Breaking Mural For Rio Olympics

    While athletes compete for various titles at Rio’s ongoing Olympic Games, one Brazilian graffiti artist Eduardo Kobra is attempting to enter the Guinness World Record for the largest mural created. Painted on the walls of a formerly abandoned warehouse in Rio, the mural, entitled “Etnias”, covers more than 3,000 square meters and stretches 109 meters. The brightly colored artwork portrays the faces of five indigenous men and women from five continents —a concept that was based on the five Olympic Rings.

    Approximately 100 gallons of white paint, 1,500 liters of colored paint, and at least 3,500 cans of spray paint were used to complete the composition, which took Kobra’s team two months working for at least 12 hours a day.

    If Kobra’s entry is accepted, it will beat the current-record holder Mexican artist Ernesto Rocha’s mural by nearly twice the size.
