Ayrton Senna Mural

Imola, Italy

Famous Brazilian street artist Eduardo Kobra painted this mural on the Museo Checco Costa to honor the legendary driver. 


The legend of Ayrton Senna has gotten much larger in the years since his passing. The Formula One driver, three times World Champion, lost his life in the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix of Imola. To celebrate his memory, his compatriot street artist Eduardo Kobra, crafted this huge graffiti memorial on the wall of the Checco Costa Museo Multimediale Autodromo di Imola (MAICC).

The mural was completed in 2019 and depicts Senna looking at the sky. An important detail in the mural is an Austrian flag and the name of Ratzenberger on his helmet to celebrate the memory of the Austrian driver that lost his life one day before Senna.

Kobra is a Brazilian street artist famous for his graffiti that encompasses all colors of the spectrum. Most of his work depicts famous historical figures and pictures. Many of paintings try to raise awareness of various environmental and social problems.
