As the World Cup looms, graffiti artists have taken to Rio's streets with colorful support fighting for space with stark images blasting the cost of the event.In the district of Laranjeiras, one example of pro-Cup graffiti depicts 2002 world champion Ronaldo.Another in the hilltop district of Santa Tereza commemorates the first of Brazil's five World Cup victories, in Sweden in 1958 . The other side of the coin shows a darker side to World Cup graffiti altogether. Another depiction shows the mascot smoking crack and wearing an "After the Cup" T-shirt.Fiuz and Peq1 have also left their mark in the trendy central Lapa district, where one of their "creations" asks rhetorically: "The Cup for who?"Jambeiro's humorous take on the 2010 World Cup in South Africa shows former coach Dunga and players he left out – Ganso, Neymar, Ronaldo, Ronaldinho and Adriano.
