I love street art. The first I saw of it in Lisbon last week made my jaw drop. Three abandoned buildings one after the other, each with an incredible mural that covers all the facades. Apparently the work of an anonymous Italian urban artist called Blu, although when I Google those particular artworks, another name also comes up, Os Gemeos. Who knows who is responsible- one or both? If you know, please tell – I need to know.
There's a lot of graffiti around this city. Some of it I feel is messy, neither here nor there, tagging style, and disrespectfully drawn over ancient walls, park benches and mosaic tiles, but most is simply where it is. A form of artistic expression that can be found wherever you look – inspiring creativity…. ->
