From The Bronx to Brazil & Back: How One Bronxite Inspired Artists Across the World

Photographer Ricky Flores, born and raised in The Bronx during our most tumultuous times had a front row seat to what was happening—along with his camera.

Ricky’s work from those times are not just of the devastation that happened but the humanity that was present and how alive the areas were with people, culture, and art despite all of that.

Decades later and the advent of the internet into the mainstream, his photography was available to the larger audience of the web and this is where 8 years ago 2 graffiti artists from Brazil, Ananda Nahu and Izalog, became so enthralled and connected to the images that they began to use them as templates for creating beautiful murals in Brazil.
