Brazilian artist remembers World Cup with massive mural


Copacabana has a new tourist attraction that is drawing in art lovers from far and wide.

Football fan and painter Marcos Jambeiro has created a monumental mural painting with the greatest moments of the 2014 World Cup.

“Everything that happened during the World Cup, I have been painting as a summary on the wall. Here Miroslav Klose and his joy as a record goalscorer. And here the mood after the tragedy, the 7-1 defeat against Germany. The deep frustration of the Selecao,” explained Jambeiro.

Jambeiro has been working on it daily since the World Cup began, and when the piece is completely finished, it will tell the full story of the tournament, from Robin van Persie’s header to Luis Suarez’s teeth to Neymar’s injury.

Every story can be told in many ways: see the perspectives from Euronews journalists in our other language teams.
