Brazilian telecom company Vivo recently sponsored a public arts project that involved 100 artists decorating and painting 100 public telephone booths around São Paulo. How cool would it be to stumble upon one of these helmet-like shells on the street? Even I would be inclined to pick up the phone and call you . . . maybe. Check out the rest of the designs here!

Sao Paulo is a very special city….
So cool… 🙂
The other day we saw a pay phone in a provincial park!! And all 6 of us tried to remember the last time we saw a pay phone, or at least someone using a pay phone in the city. These might help the lowly pay phones cause. 🙂
What a very interesting post. It’s a great selection. They are very artistics.
I think that disco ball is my favorite.
How beautiful, to add something unique to something so common.

I’m Brazilian. I see your blog almost every day. I was very happy to find here some of my city. These streets are part of my routine.
P.S: My English is terrible! I’m sorry.
ha! What’s up with that green one with the pencil???? I dig the girl that looks like she’s wearing an animal hat.
I live in São Paulo, I love your page, very nice! I see them all the time, there are more models around the Paulista Avenue, they are really amazing! xoxo
I’m brazilian as well and like the other two brazilian girls I was very happy to see this in your page. Those phone boots have funny names, they’re called “orelhões” which means big earls 😉
stop by my blog!
Amazing!!!It really makes the city nicer!!
I am proud to have participated in the Call Parade project. Initiatives like this show that art is an ally of marketing.
I enjoyed your text. Thanks for helping us spread our message.
PS.: If you have the opportunity to visit phone booths, be sure to check mine in the Pinacoteca do Estado.
