Social art engineer, United painting
Inspired by the Favela Painting Project, created together with colleague Jeroen Koolhaas, Dre Urhahn started the United Painting Foundation. The mission is to create inspiring works of art in collaboration with local communities and with over 12 years of experience in the field. He’s been working on large scale social art projects in places ranging from favelas in Brazil and communities in North Philadelphia to slum areas in Haiti and refugee camps around Europe. Currently, he is working on building a platform that aims to analyse the impact of the work and share learnings with the rest of the world.
