St. Valentine


For those that wonder what is so special about this day, well… we honestly do not know. Because history is not unambigously about Saint Valentine. But since a quiet big population of this world will do a little extra effort to show their lovin’, we might as well ! And since every day can be a ridiculous good day to overwhelm this world with a little bit of lovin’… we want to share a variety of lovely murals with one essential lovely organ, a heart while listening to this musical oldtimer of Nacht und Rebel  ; )

Let’s not talk about clitorides for now but about real testosteron. This guy has definitely build up his load since he started painting from a very young age. Inspired by magazines and newspapers absorbing all the fancy letters he could. Mainly to start copy paste them and slowly but determined finding his own way to represent himself in the streets.


Work hard Play hard (Miami) © Mr. Dheo

Already at an early age he aimed at practising his letters, bringing them to the walls of the city. Developping his own style that turned into an incredible photorealistic touch of portraits and insane geometrical shapes and compositions. The expressive faces, the bizar close-ups, and the magnificent fading and shading makes you want to stare at his murals for hours (or at least a gooooooood amount of minutes ; )


(Porto) © Mr. Dheo

His base is beautiful Porto, but he definitely often finds himself in other places all over the world. Fourty cities to be exactly counting.


Aportugalypse © Mr. Dheo

He also has his share of commissioned works, cooperating with a wide range of  (inter)national companies, brands and festivals. Though the streets keep calling him. Having his roots in the graffiti world, he experimented a fine amount to come to his personal touch of pieces.

A true companion and collaborator is another famous Portuguese graffitiwriter ParizOne***, with whom he formed a collective since 2012: Armu Yama. Ofcourse conquering the world in a magnificent combostyle of «lettering and magic realism». Like they did together in Graça (Lisbon) under the denominator «Revolutionary Toons».

Who What Where Why How come we keep on encountering those C-challenging-chalk drawings on the pavement of every city she passes? Here we collected a few answers… Shortly said:

Clitorosity is a movement to honor and spread awareness about the full structure of the clitoris. This incredible and wildly misunderstood part of the body has been represented by Clitorosity with over 90 large-scale chalk drawings in public spaces by a growing community of 60 people in 18 US states and 5 countries.

© Clitorosity

Who are you? Where are you from?

C. I am originally from Chicago and currently live in New York City. I have a background in technology and a passion for gender equality. Though I don’t have formal artistic training, I did have a giant chalkboard to let my ideas blossom growing up. There isn’t just one person behind Clitorosty – there are over 70 people who have fully participated in the creation of Clitorosity adventures.



© Clitorosity

What is your piece/the project about?

C. Clitorosity is a movement to spark curiosity and raise awareness about the full internal and external structure of the clitoris. The purpose is to inspire conversations about this incredible, yet widely misunderstood, part of the body.

 When and how come you decided to share your works in the streets?

C. I want to meet and engage with people where they are in their daily lives. Through public interactions and conversations, we learn about people’s attitudes and ideas about the clitoris.



© Clitorosity

How would you define the place and context of display added to the piece/project?

C. The place and context is unique to each drawing. We visit a variety of locations and incorporate elements of the surrounding environment through design and wordplay.

 How would you describe your style?

C. I would describe the style of Clitorosity as collaborative, educational and playful.


© Clitorosity

How do you take into account your audience?

C. I believe in collaboration in all aspects of the drawing with people who live in the location. This helps to develop a message in a location that is relatable and appropriate in the given cultural context and language.


Last November she was in town (Lisbon, Portugal) and along with our collective we aimed at painting the very first clitoris with spray.

Thank you Laura for this interview as well as an amazing afternoon of paint on the wall. Thank you for moving us, women, all over the world to be proud and shout it out loud ! If it is with chalk or spray or any other medium in between… raise awareness is what it is about !

Better late then never. And since this talent has been very busy these days…


We definitely aim to still interrupt and introduce you to her peculiar and incredible world of mythical and definitely a little mysterious characters.

CAAT back to school

She is a Belgian artist based in Lisbon. She has a history in illustration on walls, canvas, books, magazines and so on… . Her universe is made of many enigmatic figures, inspired from all kinds of sources. May it be her travels, her favourite music, her yogapractice, or reading endlessly classic old tales…

Life itself has many surprises, and time after time she explores ways to express this within her works.

Bright colours on the wall to feel excited…

Blue/red bic sketches to reveal her daily adventures…

Acrylic paintings to dig a little deeper what lives underneath…

And cool composed clothes to feel a little more brave !


It is clear that the red line within her works turns around human beings, their body & soul and this close connection to the wide world of animals.

She joined our last paint session (@yesyoucanspray) in September 2017 and amazed us once again with this magnificent mural:

Italian vibes coming our way. Because female painter, illustrator and street artist NIAN has conquered the streets and the hearts of many amongst us. And also in Lisbon ; )

NIAN III @debby_ssymah

© Nian

She studied at​ ​the​ ​Academy​ ​of​ ​Fine​ ​Arts​ ​in​ ​Florence​, working nowadays ​on​ ​several​ projects, paintings, illustrations,​ ​mural​ ​paintings, and​ ​paste​ ​ups.


© Nian



Her​ ​work​ ​dreams​ ​about​ ​a​ ​future​ ​in​ ​balance​ ​with​ ​nature​ ​and​ ​its​ ​rhythms, leaving us different polyhedral pieces as well as romantic mythical characters. Her​ ​purpose​ ​in​ ​the​ ​streets​ ​is​ ​the​ ​expression​ ​of​ ​the​ ​primitive​ ​joy​ ​of​ ​playing​ ​that​ ​finds​ ​its​ ​meaning «only​ ​if​ ​its​ ​shared».

Wednesday wall of fame!
We announced it on our facebook page on Monday, now we reveal you the artist of the week: Concreto from Columbia. Maybe you already noticed the stenciled faces in the streets of Lisbon (one is in Bairro Alto)?


Who are you? Where are you from? Your artistic resume?
I am Concreto, I am a urban artist-graphic designer. I was born in Colombia, and I have lived in Madrid for a little more than 1 year.

What is your work about? 
I seek to show animals, Aboriginal or African figures and scenes, their daily life, and how they are influenced by consumerism, slavery and conditions outside their culture, but not in a negative way. The colors, geometries and sometimes the typographies are mixed in my illustrations and on the walls to give a more graphic value to what I do.



When and how did you start to share your work in the streets?
My first wall was completed in 2009 when my cousin invited me to paint something fast in the streets. I remember painting some hands with eyes, but the same day it rained, and we were unable to take a photo.

Where do you paint? How do you use the space in addition to your work?
I like to paint in the streets whenever I can. It does not always allow me to earn money, so I combine it with my work as a freelance graphic designer to be able to do it frequently.



What memorable responses have you had to your work? Which wall are you most proud of?
I have participated in several festivals and grants that have allowed me to paint and spread what I do in different parts of the world. I usually like what I paint, then I see the pictures and see a thousand errors. Recently, I have dedicated myself completely to painting, so I’m still in the process of finding the wall that I feel proud of. I really like one of the last I painted titled “a free child” that could be my favorite work. I also painted “macondo” with the collective ums, the biggest wall of Bogota Colombia in 2015, which is a style that I do not handle so much, but it helped to recover an abandoned and violent area. Thanks to this wall, many doors were opened for me to continue in this dream.

Wednesday wall of fame!


Today we will talk about a German artist from Hamburg, Tona. He is the specialist of kids paste up spread around the world and there are many of them in the streets of Lisbon. He is involved in the street art scene since 99 (graffiti) and started stencils in 2002, silkscreen and linocut in 2008.


In a world that often seems to be unfair, mean and brutal and people are blinkered, TONA wants to confront us to this distorted perception with a dreamy, sensual and emotional perspective. Inspired by the children he crossed during his travels, he creates colorful paste ups. 21741258_1629621400434218_6636945272072444428_o

“Unlike elsewhere in the street art world, which probably works more with criticism and irony, the motive of the artist is to deconstruct the viewers „ordinary“ perceptions and to give them inner peace, joy and a smile. By means of this, mostly temporary art in public space, we, as the viewer, if we allow it, feel a transformation of the world around us and our own consciousness.”

Not so long ago we had the pleasure to meet up with a jazzmusician in heart and soul all the way from Belgium. Besides his musical vibes, he thought it was time for something new… Although from a very young age he got acquainted with the art of (oil)painting, it is only the last 4years that sprayart became another kind of way to present his animalistic view on the world.

cee pil 7

The interruptions in his creations aim to create a perfect fit for the piece to be perceived. Although it is he who learned all the tricks of the trade by himself and also inspired by the big artists accidentally surrounding him, like another great Belgian street artist called ROA.

Spending time in Ghent as well as Berlin, maybe Lisbon might become his next destination to experiment even more. He arrived here together with the organizing crew of the Wallin’ collective, a Belgian organization aimed at highlighting the artistic value of arts in the streets, maybe it be pure graffiti or pure street art. But also to create an exchange of talent beyond boarders. Which resulted – in the case of CEE PIL – some wonderful big pieces in Loures, Montepio as well as one near the airport.

This week we will introduce you to an ancient tradition from Portugal with influences from all over the world wrapped up into a new package!


In 2015, Joana came up with a project during her master degree of Arts & Design in Public Space. This project got the name «Preencher Vazios» (filling up the empty spaces).

It started as a project to create more awareness about those façades of houses in cities like Porto and Lisbon. Mainly the empty spaces left behind due to an increasing loss of those azulejos, the typical ceramic tiles. The preservation of those tiles, of which some are already more than a 100y old is one of the pillars that have launched this project.

But this artistic intervention also aims to draw attention to the smaller details surrounding us all in our everyday lives. And to amaze the people passing by with something new and something different from their usual routes. Not only the patterns and the colours – that resemble the existing tiles – but also the small fragments of Portuguese poetry aim to awaken our senses.


Besides the whole historical aspect as well as the dynamics that further evolve the use of materials and tradition, Preencher vazios organizes workshops to do-it-yourself and stimulate an azulejo-movement! Check out her online media to follow up on the next intervention !


Thank you Joana for your words to introduce us into your tiles-world as well as in creating possibilities to design our own tiles and support this old tradition !! For anyone interested in supporting this project as well as in creating or buying any gadget (from totebags to little booklets to personalized azulejos…) you can contact her directly:

Blu strikes again!!!

This is the last wall made by the great Italian artist we want to present you today; this work is part of a tree-days-meeting of street artists involved in the NO TAV protest.

Blu came from Senigallia, and travels all around to spread his political messages, like…
