Their political stand was visible in São Paulo during the protests of June 2013, as their poster "Uma Cidade Muda Não Muda" (roughly translated as "A Mute City Doesn't Change") became the front-piece of the movement.

Empowering Street Artists, Activating Citizens

BY MARIO RUEDA
@ PECHAKUCHA URBAN INNOVATION MONTH ON APR 01, 2014

Many think of vandalism and graffiti when they hear the words "street art", but people like Mario Rueda see the city in a very different light. Public spaces are taken over by advertisements and corporations, but the artists, performers, and musicians who share their creativity and seek to delight fellow citizens are treated like criminals. Book a Street Artist is a platform which seeks to empower artists, and give back the city to citizens.
