This Gang Of Flower Cyclists Is Taking Over São Paulo In A Beautiful Way

Flower Messenger is an art performance piece that disrupts the flow of city traffic in the best possible way. The piece has dozens of cyclists riding through São Paulo every day to give out flowers and spread beauty.

The performance was designed by artist Azuma Makoto to add fresh life to the city until May 7th.

The piece is a simple ode to Japanese culture as well as a creative way to highlight São Paulo's urban landscape. The route was planned so that Flower Messenger would roll between landmarks in the city, leaving flowers and joy in its wake.

“Flower Messenger is an interruption in the city’s nervous flow, with a completely entertaining and inspiring message,” says Marcello Dantas, director of programming at Japan House in São Paulo. “Suddenly that place that was empty yesterday is filled with flowers today. Soon they disappear, but they remain a memory.”
