Selerón's Story
In 1990, Selarón began renovating dilapidated steps that ran along the front of his house. At first, neighbours mocked him for his choice of colours as he covered the steps in fragments of blue, green and yellow tiles – the colours of the Brazilian flag. It started out as a side-project to his main passion, painting, but soon became an obsession. He found he was constantly out of money, so Selarón sold paintings to fund his work. It was long and exhausting work but he continued on and eventually covered the entire set of steps in tiles, ceramics and mirrors.
. No sooner than one section of the steps were 'finished', Selarón started work on another section, constantly changing it so that it was an ever evolving piece of art. Selarón considered the work as

Selerón's Story In 1990, Selarón began renovating dilapidated steps that ran along the front of his house. At first, neighbours mocked him for his choice of colours as he covered the steps in fragments of blue, green and yellow tiles – the colours of the Brazilian flag. It started out as a side-project to his main passion, painting, but soon became an obsession. He found he was constantly out of money, so Selarón sold paintings to fund his work. It was long and exhausting work but he continued on and eventually covered the entire set of steps in tiles, ceramics and mirrors. . No sooner than one section of the steps were 'finished', Selarón started work on another section, constantly changing it so that it was an ever evolving piece of art. Selarón considered the work as "never complete"[3] and claimed that "This crazy and unique dream will only end on the day of my death".[1] Originally, tiles for the work were scavenged from various construction sites and piles of urban waste found on the Rio streets. But in later years most of the tiles were donated by visitors from all around the world. He traveled, lived and worked as a painter and sculptor in over 50 countries around the world before arriving and deciding to settle in Rio de Janeiro in 1983. He began renovating the steps on a whim in 1990.[1] Many times, his phone was cut off and he was threatened to be evicted from his house due to being unable to afford the living costs. He sold many paintings and accepted donations from locals and travelers to continue his work t was a labor of love for the artist who resided in the same house by the steps he lived in when he started the work. He was mostly unfazed by the attention given to him by curious onlookers and tourists alike. He was constantly spotted at the steps working by day. Tour with me: 🕶⛰Fabuloso Rio!

Sometimes we think that we will have an ordinary tour (because of the weather), but at the end we get a gift. Always happy to give our best to our clients. Some people may call it luck, we prefer to call ir faith. #citytour #sugarloaf #christ #lapasteps #cathedral #riodejaneiro #brazil #lonelyplanet #besttravel #instatravel #bealocal #bealocaltours #tripadvisor #localguide #localtour #instatravel #travel #backpacking #vacation #hostelworld #southamerica #traveller #traveler #wanderlust #vemprorio #letsgoexperience #gadventures #LetsGuide #travelgram #traveladdict

Lapa steps Rio, Brazil 2018.  Does anyone remember “Beautiful” the music video by Snoop Dog And Pharrell? It was filmed here!

The artist Jorge Selarón began to restore the derelict steps outside his house, which soon escalated into an obsession to cover the entire staircase. He made tribute to the people of Brazil by using the colours of the flag, covering over 200 steps with tiles from over 60 countries. Get lost in the steps, seeking out the fun, familiar or unusual titles. I couldn’t help but return to explore further of this beautiful art work.

Slipped in some cardio between the feasting and found some San Francisco tiles. Followed by some sketch alleyways and an adventurous taxi ride.

Caught cracking up at Escadaria Selarón, also known as the Lapa steps. Chilean artist Selarón started this colourful project after travelling the world and added over 2000 tiles since. The project remains unfinished and you can collaborate with the artist by sending tiles to be added to the staircase.
