Escadaria Selarno (Selaron steps) is a world-famous artistic site in Rio de Janeiro. The tiled steps are the work of Jorge Selarno who created this space as tribute to the Brazilian people.
He shared his story on the tiles below.
Over the years, Escadaria Selaron has received international recognition and has become a major tourist attraction in Rio.
While Selaron purchased many completed artistic tiles or had tiles donated by others, he used many of them as a canvas for his own paintings.
Selaron was found dead on his stairs at the age of 65. At last, his work was complete. Escadaria Selaron lives on as major attraction in Rio de Janerio.
