Eduardo Kobra Releases New Mural in Honor of F1 Champion Ayrton Senna

The Brazilian circuit of Interlagos, home of one of the most traditional events in Formula 1 racing, celebrated its 80th anniversary on Tuesday with a new giant mural of the legendary Ayrton Senna; produced by the famous artist Eduardo Kobra.

Nearing the level of national folklore, the story of how Senna won Brazilian Grand Prix despite problems in the gearbox ing the final laps of the race is widely know.

The work will be unveiled this Tuesday, at the entrance of the circuit’s boxes. 27 meters high by 10 meters wide, it commemorates the victory of the Brazilian driver in 1991 at the São Paulo race track, one of the most epic of his career. With this win, Ayrton Senna became a three-time Formula 1 world champion and died just 3 short years later on May 1, 1994, during the San Marino Grand Prix in Imola, Italy.

Interlagos ended up becoming a space for tributes to Ayrton. There are also statues and now this beautiful mural by Kobra, which, through his Instagram account, showed his satisfaction in completing yet another tribute to the much admired driver, who would have turned 60 in March of this year.

The Documentary Series "Nuevo Mundo" Provides a Fresh Look at Street Art in South America

In an eight part series, the work of more than 50 South American artists dedicated to urban art and muralism will be examined to discover their influences and artistic codes. It also takes a look at common themes that form the basis of their expression and how it impacts the relationship between the city and its inhabitants.
Nuevo Mundo (translated as “New World”) was produced by the Chilean audiovisual company Tercermundo and is directed by Juan Tamayo. In addition, Paulina Ferretti and Guillermo Migrik worked as producers on the first-of-its-kind series.
Filming took two years and spans from the US-Mexico border to Argentina; providing us with many different views of the world, reasons for expression, and styles of street art across Latin America. All of this falls under one unique premise, that regardless of the part of Latin America where a mural or piece of street art was made, it still has certain characteristics unique to the region.
