CROSSROADS speaks of art as a tool for transformation.

The periphery of Cape Town, South Africa, is the epicenter of an inspiring journey through the work of the graffitti-rooted art collective Boa Mistura.

 

Along the way, urban art becomes the vehicle that connects the lives of a favela resident in São Paulo, a young man from the slum of Kibera, Kenya, a Mapuche indigenous woman in northern Chile, a Syrian refugee and a woman from a fishing village in the Dominican Republic.

These small encounters through painting are the spark that ignites changes both in the neighbors of the communities and in the collective.

BOA MISTURA

Original idea 
 
Boa Mistura is an artistic collective with roots in graffiti born at the end of 2001 in Madrid, formed by Javier Serrano, Pablo Ferreiro, Pablo Purón and Juan Jaume.
 
Their work is mainly developed in public space, and they understand it as a tool to transform the city, respond to its stimuli and create links between people.
 
Their "Crossroads" project, supported by a methodology that integrates the neighbors of communities as an active part of a transformation process through painting, has been taken over a decade to peripheral neighborhoods in Brazil, Colombia, Paraguay, Chile, Nicaragua, Panama, Mexico, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Spain, Kenya, South Africa, Senegal, Algeria, Spain or Holland.

 

In 2018, the "Crossroads" methodology received the bronze medal at the UN Habitat + World Habitat World Habitat Awards.
