100 Artists Uniquely Design Phone Booths in São Paulo

  • Pay phones may not be as prevalent as they used to be, but who’s to say that they aren’t staples of our environments? In the metropolitan region of São Paulo, Brazil, phone booths serve as more than just obsolete stands due to the creative public art project titled Call Parade. The ongoing group exhibition, which is sponsored by phone carrier Vivo, has transformed 100 telephone booths into works of art by 100 different artists. Each helmet-like booth features the work of an inventive artist’s wildest imagination. The public shells are intricately adorned, painted, and illustrated on to depict anything from an elaborate mansion to a vibrant cartoon fish. The concept behind each booth is just as interesting as how the artists choose to fashion both the outside and inside of said shells. How fun would it be to come across one of these phone booths?
