Hero de Janeiro is, as its name suggests, a real hero, but luckily for the Dutch he is from Amsterdam. Hero is a cheerful and sociable person and we recognize this in all his works. He makes fashionable StreetArt that we see often in the streets of Amsterdam. That these works sometimes only remain on the streets for several hours, indicates that the works are highly wanted. Therefore we see him as a real Amsterdam StreetArt Hero. Hero’s common characters are Jip & Janneke, the 17th century soldier and Karl Lagerfeld who all have a ghetto blaster, as an attribute, with them. The use of the ghetto blaster refers to Hero’s musical side, because at day he entertains the people with his artworks, and at night he lets them dance at his Hero beats.
