The colorful world of Maria Imaginário

Pedro Matos recently introduced me to the artwork of Maria Imaginário. Maria mostly paints in Lisbon, and she does those wonderful sort of paintings that make the everyday person smile. While David Choe’s early mindless vandalism is all good and well, it’s nice to have some street art that anybody can enjoy. The colors remind me of the kind of street art I would expect to see in Brazil, and that’s fantastic too. What do you think?
