Favela Eyes

French street artist JR has been painting giant eyes on the sides of the hillside favelas in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The effect is that the perched shantytowns appear to be staring out at the city’s affluent high condos nearby. See more images see JR’s site and on the Urban Revival Blog.
