    Xomatok, an artist from Peru, together with a bunch of citizens of Lima, decided to paint prismatic patterns on steps going up the hills of the city. They are influenced by the blankets hand-made by Andean craftsmen.

    This is what the effects of their work look like.

    You can clearly see them from afar

    You can see them mainly in the poorer pars of the city

    If there are steps like that in your neighborhood, would you like them to be painted this way?
