Paintsessions

Several times a year we invite a few established graffiti-writers and street artists based and/or from Lisbon to join to a creative afternoon and paint around a chosen  theme. Because of its location (Calçada da Gloria, Lisbon) we do aim to invite people passing by to also try out themselves on the legal walls. Everyone who wants to join is welcome! Because we want people to learn the tricks of the trade, in an informal though ludique way, to paint/create/spray/intervene on some “legal” walls and leave “their imaginary mark” in Lisbon!

The ultimate aim is to inspire each to find different ways to express oneself whether it be with letters or characters, with installations or performances. But also to learn in the exchange with artists that found ways to explore, express and experiment through different media in public space. This way we want to show our respect and appreciation for how they colour and beautify our cities and promote their works and message out there.

We always tend to invite established graffiti-writers and street artists, who can teach us the tricks of the trade, in an informal though ludique way, to create ourselves some creative interventions in the streets (mainly focussed on the grip of the spray can which is not an easy tool : ) This way we want to show our respect and appreciation for how they colour and beautify our cities !

Part of the money we earn through our tours goes directly to this side-project to be able to organize these workshops and paintsessions, relating to the materials and the logistics.

Untill now we could always count on good friends of us, fe. Kurtz Amor and Utopia63, that affected others with their enthusiasm and skills (like fe. on International day of the woman – March 2016) – for a nice overview (made by Rita Antunes Fotografia).
