Selected graffiti:

Many ciurbies, as we use to denominate the actions, were already realized in Brazil, in cities of the Distrito Federal, as Brasília (on the Brasília University, on the National Theater, on the National Museum), Taguatinga and Ceilândia (cities surrounding Brasília). A ciurbi happened in Santa Maria, Rio Grande do Sul. Other ciurbi was realized in France, in the city of Aix-en-Provence, with the community of the École Superieure d’Art.
