Look At Porto

Recent wall completed by Vhils in April for “Look at Porto”, in the great city of Porto, Portugal.
“The piece combines natural and human elements, with the figure’s eye gazing out poetically towards the city and its old neighbourhoods, humanising the built environment while highlighting the wealth of its human heritage.”

Wild Orphan

Mural by Tamara Alves for Wool Festival in Covilhã, Portugal.

“This mural was named after an Allen Ginsberg poem called Wild Orphan.
After discovering the city of Covilhã, this piece transformed itself into an ode and at the same time an awareness to the slow death of its heritage, the bobbin lace work as one of them.
‘Don’t let it became a myth.’ This piece is both it’s death and its reborn at the same time: ‘to create out of his own imagination the beauty of his wild forebears – a mythology he cannot inherit.'”

Who Is Tamara Alves?

Tamara Alves is a Portuguese artist, based in Lisbon who’s inspired by urban life. Tamara is focused on illustration, painting, tattoos and street art.

“The work of Tamara Alves represents an erotic view of a contemporary body with the effects of its own limits expanded. Instead of a rational thinking there’s a rough passion, a body-without-organs, a becoming animal, the experienced sensations, ‘starving histerical naked’ (Allen Ginsberg).
Since 2000 she has been a part of several projects, group and solo exhibitions, street art interventions and she’s one of the most notorious female street artists in Portugal.”*
