In Amoreiras, where Lisbon has one of it’s greatest graffiti walls of fame, there will be a Graffiti Jam. Between 5 and 6 of October, more than 20 different artists will be painting live! Not only is this place worth visiting if you’re into graffiti, but this will be a cool event if you want to see these guys in action and even eventually meet them!
Also between 3 and 7 of October, a set of 8 containers provided by Lisbon’s Port was painted by Mar, RAM, Draw, Nomen, Tamara Alves, Mesk, Caver and Third, a group of amazing Portuguese street artists. They were decorated with the SEA as inspiration, to help promote a sailing race that will take place at the Tagus river and are spread around the whole city.
