Price range information: Sorry none available.

The duo’s most famous work has been some paintings done in the favelas of Rio de Janiero, Brazil. These works are very large and colorful murals. In this clip we view a short documentary on the favela project:

 

Another interesting project was a collaboration with HUB Footwear.

Haas and Hahn are great examples of how great art and color can make a huge diffrence in neighborhoods were hope might temporarily seem to be lost.

Another great ascpect of the favela project was that they employed and trained 25 people to help with the project, so an economic boost to the local economy was also given in that sense.
