Just as the Olympic games brings the world's very best athletes together to compete on the world's stage, it also attracts millions of others, including talented artist's like Eduardo Kobra who's just taken the top spot for the world's largest mural completed by a single man.

At an impressive 30,000 square foot (2787 square metres) if painting murals was an olympic sport Kobra would undoubtably finish first. Titled Las Etnias (The Ethnicities), the mural was created to celebrate the 2016 Olympic Games currently being held in Rio de Janeiro and has used 100 gallons of white paint and more than 400 gallons of coloured paint, not to mention 3,500 spray cans!

The mural depicts indigenous people from all around the world. “The idea behind it is that we are all one. We’re living through a very confusing time with a lot of conflict. I wanted to show that everyone is united, we are all connected,” says Kobra.
