I had the pleasure to have the company of the very talented photographer Hugo Moura while I was paiting this mural in Lisbon.

Part of the WOOL on tour, this 22mt stencil mural in LX Factory, Lisbon, is part of the work I’ve been developing around the traditional portuguese tiles (called azulejos). A message is stated and a bridge is created between the traditional tiles, it’s reinterpretation and the way the old meets the new. Through shapes, elements and techniques.
ANTIGA MENTE NOVA it’s a word game between ‘antigamente’, ‘antiga mente’ and ‘mente nova’ (‘formerly’, ‘old mind’ and ‘new mind’).
Big thanks and love to WOOL and Lara Seixo Rodrigues for the invitation and João Miguez for all the help.

Here are some cool “making of” photos from the Walk&Talk Public Art Festival mural in Ponta Delgada, Azores islands.
Part of the ‘Morphing Series’ I’ve been developing, this azulejo (ceramic tiles) mural consists of five independent modules that create an apparent sense of deconstruction throughout the entire piece. Like all of my azulejo work, it requires a closer look as it reveals that all the five modules connect between themselves and create a “disguised unity”
30mt long, by 1,80mt (left) and 0,30mt (right) this piece was possible thanks to the amazing production and partnership with Revigrés.
