Never Forever


« And on the pedestal, these words appear:
“My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings,
Look on my Works ye Mighty, and despair!”
No thing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.’— »

Percy Bysshe Shelley (Ozymandias, in Rosalind and Helen, 1819)

Happy Birthday!!! (Refreshed and Stronger)


Tal como anunciamos, a primeira intervenção neste spot decorreu por volta de 2011. Voltamos a visitá-lo há exatamente três anos e, a propósito da sua aparição no Google Street View, novamente há um ano.
Hoje vemo-lo renovado com a alegria estival de 2019.

As mentioned before, we hit this spot for the first time around 2011. Once again, we talked about it exactly three years ago and again last year.
Now this painting has been updated with a new drawing and fresh bright paint.

Sexism: Working Twice As Hard


"Running around underground as a female was hugely dangerous. I had to disguise myself as a guy and try not to stand out... The police would threaten us if we were female. There was sexism from the guys who didn’t want to believe that I was doing my own work. I had to paint with different groups of writers to prove myself. Like any woman, I had to work twice as hard to get equal treatment."

Lady Pink (legendary graffiti writer)

A Rebellious Way


“I see my early street-writing as a rebellious way to visually express myself artistically, a form of communication with the public. Graffiti contributed to my life in that I was able to become a free human being with a free spirit. It taught me many life lessons and helped me through difficult times.”

Mickey (legendary female graffiti artist from the Netherlands)

Survivor


We found quite touching that this painting is still alive in São João do Estoril. It was done in ancient times and even appeared in Google Street View and, before that, in a post in the summer of 2009.
It endures thanks to the city's inhabitants. Love you all!

Submissão consentida


« Surgira uma séria disputa entre o cavalo e o javali; então, o cavalo foi a um caçador e pediu ajuda para se vingar. O caçador concordou, mas disse: “Se deseja derrotar o javali, você deve permitir que eu ponha esta peça de ferro entre as suas mandíbulas, para que possa guiá-lo com estas rédeas, e que coloque esta sela nas suas costas, para que possa me manter firme enquanto seguimos o inimigo.” O cavalo aceitou as condições e o caçador logo o selou e bridou. Assim, com a ajuda do caçador, o cavalo logo venceu o javali, e então disse: “Agora, desça e retire essas coisas da minha boca e das minhas costas.” “Não tão rápido, amigo”, disse o caçador. “Eu o tenho sob minhas rédeas e esporas, e por enquanto prefiro mantê-lo assim.” »

Unblocking The Holes


De tempos em tempos mencionamos a importância de manter os estênceis limpos para melhor conservá-los. 
Após uso persistente, as áreas vazadas podem entupir-se e requerer uma limpeza meticulosa. No final, pode ser surpreendente a quantidade de partículas removidas.

From time to time we talk about how important it is to keep stencils cleaned
When stencil holes get blocked, repairing is needed. So we industriously cut small details in order to allow the paint to flow.
In the end, we were astonished by the considerable amout of scraps we had to sweep.

G&SA


"G&SA [Graffiti & Street Art] unauthorized practices are social and place attached contextual creations, simple unplanned actions or complex chain of actions (including the strategy for taking the picture) as a process where the tangible piece is only one of the many elements."
