We are a group of girls all part of the YESYOUCAN.SPRAY collective and work together closely with street artists in many different ways. Not only our research but also continuously highlighting the beauty and message of what they write on the walls… We come from different countries and backgrounds but we are all linked to the street art world! We also love Lisbon and that’s why we are here 🙂
Exploring this weird and wonderful world through what is written on the walls – her lifephilosophy is all about engaging an interACTive, intercultural and interARTive dialogue. After discovering several countries around the world, this Belgian beerlover decided to settle in one of the most colourful and exciting cities of Europe. With a background in socio-cultural work and relation- and communication-sciences, setting up and organizing workshops and events for a broad audience, she is currently finalizing her writing in visual anthropology inspired by creative interventions in-the-streets.
CHARLENE (graphic design/online communication)
She use to do graphic design in the capital of fashion and arts, now she is learning to use spraycans on clothes, accessories and furnitures (that she finds in the street). She fell in love with Lisbon at first sight and thought that was a sign to move here. She does not love beer but she likes good wine (as all french people) and chocolate. You can see her in coffeeshops like café Tati or Hello Kristoff with her laptop working on some mysterious project. If you happen to come on her tour please do not mention her french accent she is very ashamed of it 😉
French woman from a small village, where only cornfields and cows exist. She decided to live a more exciting experience through discovering several big cities all around Europe. Finally, she settled for a home in Lisbon with an unlimited period of time. Passionated by arts, travels and history, she got a master degree in cultural communication and territorial development. Currently, she´s studying Portuguese language, culture and history. Her motto is : never stop learning about anything and everything. She will reveal you for sure different sides of this amazing city that is full of lights, colours, mysteries, unexpected ways, cosmopolitan areas, spontaneous events and of course, notorious street art. Hyper-active… don´t be surprised by her energy while she shares her passion and knowledge with you.
She moved back to Portugal a short while ago after half a life between Belgium and England. Her greatest loves are her daughter and this beautiful country of her childhood. She’s back in a mission to discover, learn and share her insights about the country she feels so connected to. With a deep passion for writing, photography and the visual arts in general, as soon as she has spare time that’s what she’ll dedicate too. Technology and speed are not her best buddies, she prefers anything from sharing good wine and a meal with friends to dancing or listening to a well felt fado, or just walking or driving hours on end.
Blandine studied international business in Paris but thinks Lisbon is such a better city to live in. The people, the food, the weather, the culture, the night life, the STREET ART… Check out for yourself! Unlike the typical french girl, she craves more for a fresh beer after a long day than for a glass of wine… Probably because she was raised in Brittany. Crazy about travelling, she backpacked all around Asia and South America and just like Jack, hits the road whenever she can. In love with fashion, hip hop and dancing, you might see her going crazy on the dance floors of Lisbon. She truly believes that people should think less and dance more!
