La Madone de São Paulo

Painted on the side of a building in downtown São Paulo, this elegant and fantasmagoric mural representation of Santa Muerte, aka Our Lady of Holy Death, confronts you with your mortal coil and finite time on Earth.

The genesis of this contemporary memento mori, titled La Madone de São Paulo, came in 2015 through an artistic collaboration between the Puerto Rican artist Alexis Diaz and the Chilean artist INTI. It was created for the first international O.bra Festival, a collective art project that aims to bring mind-blowing art to urban settings.
