Bicicleta Sem Freio, also known as Bicycle Without Brakes comprising two talented artists Douglas Castro and Renato Reno, have taken to the walls in the district and have a visual extravaganza to offer.

Stretching across Khan Market to Meharchand Market, the duo have collaborated with the St+Art India Foundation for the project.

Also known as Facing Walls, the two murals under the project are inspired by the local Indian flora fauna.

Though Douglas and Renato work collectively, this time they have individually worked on their pieces for the first time.

Through their works one can find context of celebration of life interspersed with colours.

A concept that is deeply embedded in both Indian and Brazilian cultures.

The Facing Walls project has been carried forth in collaboration with the Embassy of Brazil, Swachh Bharat Mission, CPWD and Sanskriti Museums.

All the photographs are taken by Akshat Nauriyal. You can find more of his works here.
