Mural by Rimon Guimarães in Brussels, Belgium

With his art in public space Rimon wants to take people away from their monotonous daily routines and provoke them to see the street as a place where they can exchange real-life experiences instead of seeing it only as a means of travelling from one place to another.

Anthropology and African art play a major role in Guimarães’ work  and the theme of the  African diaspora feature prominently, reflecting the cultural mix both in his native Brazil as well as around world.
