Brazilian street art has gotten a shoutout from none other than Bollywood actor Arjun Rampal. In a recent post on his Instagram timeline, he shared a bunch of street art photos. The vibrant artworks show different beautiful faces painted on the walls along the streets. What's charming about these murals is that they incorporate and merge with adjacent trees and shrubs. The trees and shrubs are made to look like the hair on the head of these painted faces. Arjun Rampal wrote, "Brazilian street art. Love it. Will give most hairstylists a run for their money."

The artworks are the original creations of Brazilian artist Fabio Gomes Trindade. Here is a photo from his Instagram page where a child and a woman are seen marvelling at the mural of a girl with purple hair and the adjacent purple flower bush.
