OK, please let me in on the secret. Back on April 20, 2007, I posted on the documentary, Gaudi in the Favela. It told of Estevão Silva da Conceição's home in a favela (shanty town) in the centre of Sao Paulo, Brazil. Today, I have wall to wall visitors to The Trad Pad after doing Google searches. So, I assume his work and his name are in the media somewhere - because the visitors are from around the world - including my neck of the woods in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne. So, dear Reader, please tell me what has started this? Is Gaudi in the Favela showing or in the news?
Please note the comment from tavella.
The reason for the visits is due to a BBC news item.
I hope everyone gets to see Estevao's work in Gaudi in the Favela.
Beauty can be created anywhere if we have the eye and the spirit for it.
As Estevao shows - these are more important than the materials, which can be quite basic.
