Graffiti Art brings Patriotism to the Poor

The graffiti artist "Mundano" painted a big Brazilian flag on this building that for more than a decade, the old Santos Dumond Hotel, in downtown Sao Paulo, was empty. Today, it shelters more than 120 families that have illegally occupied the building. Check out the action video and some photos of the work and process.

The artist was inspired by the kids that live there "I've always painted the Brazilian Flag but now it's the perfect time, because of the World Cup" — Mundano

In Sao Paulo there are more empty buildings than homeless families.
