Mixed Emotions. A fusion of iconic images with powerful color treatment that causes a feeling of a gateway in time. Suddenly, you feel you are here and elsewhere at the same time. This is the kind feeling you have when you visually experiences the artwork of the Brazilian street muralist Eduardo Kobra.

It is impossible not to notice the Kobra´s artworks as you pass by in the streets of New York. The city that never sleeps stays even more awake by his kaleidoscopic images. The message is clear: Fight for Street Art. He stamped his motto on his mural in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The piece is an eye-catching Pop Art tribute that portrays the legendary Andy Warhol and the 80s superstar Jean-Michel Basquiat.

Brazilian artist Kobra first drew New York´s attention with its monumental version of the famous photograph "VJ Day" by Alfred Eisenstaedt. The timeless kiss burst with Kobra´s kaleidoscopic colors is viewable from the High Line at Chelsea. 

He is known worldwide for his ‘Walls of Memory’ project, which visually revisits a city’s past while looking into how history can influences our future. The massive scale and placement of these murals creates the illusion that one could pass through its kaleidoscopic rainbow.

 Kobra is leaving colorful footprints in many American walls. His mind  blowing 3D pieces at Sarasota Festival of Art made the whole city  chat about it. The hip-hop fans elected his mural, a tribute to B.I.G  and Tupac, as the most iconic wall at Wynwood Art District in Miami.

If you think that just the trendy crowd of Miami can appreciate Kobra´s artwork, is better to think again.  Kobra´s colorful version of 54 feet of Abraham Lincoln is standing out in the sidewall of Historic Theater in Lexington, Kentucky.  

What about the West Coast? Kobra sprays his talent there too. Check it out the pop version of the patriotic South Dakota´s Mount Rushmore.

   Brazil & USA Biz Magazine just touched base with Kobras´s crew to check it out what he is up to. And guess what? Kobra is finishing today his pop version of the streetcar named desire in San Francisco's Historic District.

We would all like to bring home Kobra's artwork, but is a hassle move a wall. In any case, you can quench your thirst for art by buying a bottle of Perrier. The sophisticated water launched the Perrier Street Art Limited Edition with bottles designed by Kobra
