A once modest house in Sao Paulo has been transformed into an extraordinary work of art.

The house has earned its creator, Estevao Conceicao, the nickname of the 'Brazilian Gaudi' with similarities between his work and that of the legendary Spanish-Catalan architect.

But the artist says he had no knowledge of Antoni Gaudi when he set out on his artistic journey.
