Let’s Colour Project

Their mission is to spread colour all over the world. Their target is any grey space.
Paint giants Dulux, Duluz Valentine, Coral and Marshall have combined forces and working together with local communities have painted streets, houses, schools and squares across the globe.
Since March 2010 the Let’s Colour Project has hit up:

Streets of Lapa, Rio de Janeiro

A council estate in Aulnay-sous-bois, Paris

Virginia Primary School in Tower Hamlets, London
A community square, school and main road of Jodhpur, Rajasthan, India
There’s a lot of vids on youtube detailing the project, but one of my favs is this stop-motion animation by directors Le Groupuscule. It depicts the evolution of the murals in Marseille, Lyon and Paris painted by Matt W. Moore. The accompanying track is by Monsieur Monsieur.

Here’s some more about the project
