Surrealejos aka Luca Colapietro

Not so long ago there was this amazing urban art festival, Paratissima Lisboa, and one of the Italian artists that left his contemporary version of the azulejos (the typical ceramic tiles of Portugal covering many houses inside and outside) is Surrealejos. You can find his little atelier in the citycentre of Lisbon in Mouraria.

Surrealejos® arises from a vision, set in Lisbon, in which waking and dreaming are both present to combine harmoniously. Going beyond rationality, takes shape the surreal concept of the traditional Portuguese azulejos.
