Lapa’s Selarón, the Chilean artist who made the famous colored steps of Lapa (the neighborhood I just wrote about), was found dead this morning at the bottom of the steps. Here’s the news in English and in Portuguese.
Here’s my article (“How color came to Lapa one step at a time”) from a little over 2 years ago on the man. RIP.
