Brazilian street artist Alex Senna adorns walls around the world with large scale black and white murals of amusingly elongated characters that have a wonderful familiar feel to them. Several murals feature the warmth of a happy family – posing together, hugging each other or going for a bicycle ride, while the lone characters evoke a specific sense of purpose – hurrying down the stairs, crossing the street or just sitting on the grass with big eyes focused on the stars.
