Graffiti in Lisbon, did you know?

You know how we say that Rome is an open air museum? Well, no one ever said that to Lisbon, I know, but bear with me. 

Couldn't we say that Lisbon is an open-air graffiti museum? Ok, just said it. 

If you take a closer look you will find lots of buildings all over the city centre with amazing graffiti art. 
From beautiful pieces to political messages, and also pieces reminding us of our history. 

If you’ve been in Lisbon, quite a few times, and don’t remember seeing it, don’t blame yourself. 
Next time you will definitely have a closer look.

In Mouraria you will find a few graffiti describing what fado music is all about:

You can also find, just fun stuff down on Bairro Alto:

Or appreciate Bordalo II’s work, made with garbage material:

Or Vhils work as well, he works mainly with explosives but this piece in particular honours Amália Rodrigues:


Pavement art to honour Amália Rodrigues.


Or you can even see a more modern approach:
