Famed Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer passed away this December, at the age of 104. He left behind a crazy, controversial legacy, with a slew of buildings in Brasilia and beyond. Niemeyer loved concrete, he loved Le Corbusier, and he loved curves.

Now graffiti artist Eduardo Kobra is honoring his legacy in the form of a gigantic, colorful mural. The 61-yard piece adorns a building in Sao Paulo's financial district. Below images of the work, taken by Reuters photographer Nacho Doce.
