Brazil has the support of the nation as they play to win a 6th World Cup. And they will be traveling in style in pursuit in a custom graffiti covered plane highlighting the appreciation for street art in the South American country.
The Boeing 737-800 was painted by Os Gemeos, the identical twin brothers Otavio and Gustavo Pandolfo. The brothers’ work has helped define the graffiti style of Brazil.
The inside of the plane has a more traditional look in the cockpit and seating area.
The WorldSoccerShop.com used this love with graffiti to bring the world the passion of the people from Brazil in their Brazil 2014 Graffiti commercial and the Derlon mural that will greet USA fans as they travel to Arena Pernambuco for the critical 3rd and final group stage match against Germany.
The World Cup has been the focus of many graffiti projects in the country from ones highlighting Fuleco, the official 2014 FIFA World Cup mascot, to past stars of the Selecao.
Graffiti has always asked questions and challenged authorities and the status quo and that is no different from some of the World Cup related graffiti that has questioned the amount of funding the tournament has received at the expense of the needs of every day Brazilians.
But in the end the hope is that the 2014 edition of the World Cup will help the country kiss good-bye to the memory of 1950.
