This TED Talk with Dutch artists Jeroen Koolhaas and Dre Urhahn, who go by Haas&Hahn, demonstrates how they are using paint to transform some of the poorest communities in Rio de Janeiro, Philadelphia, and Haiti. Their designs are simple, but compelling, and they always let the community help create the final product. I love that the art they are creating isn’t complicated by nature, but is complex and sincere in the way it affects the community. Their work is truly inspiring.
