The Street Art of Lisbon

The Street Art of Lisbon | Culture and Fun - Art | Scoop.it
The street art of Lisbon is one of the best that I’ve seen. I take a lot of guided graffiti tours, from Brazil to Palestine to Perth to Germany, and the one I took in Lisbon was one of the best I’ve been on.There was so much of it in the 1+ hour car tour of the city, that we only got to see a small percent of it! But what I did get to see was some amazing art work.My guide in Lisbon knew exactly where to take me for the greatest pieces, including a city wall, a health clinic wall, giant murals covering whole buildings, and many other hidden treasures.Here are the highlights of one of the best graffiti/street art tours in Europe.

I Make Paper And Wood Birds By Hand-Cutting Every Feather

I Make Paper And Wood Birds By Hand-Cutting Every Feather | Culture and Fun - Art | Scoop.it

Zack Mclaughlin writes Inspired by the beauty of birds I love to create sculptures from paper, wood and other mixed media.

I began making these sculptures a couple of years ago, the first one I made was for my own children’s book concept where a little boy makes a paper bird lantern and flies away. I couldn’t visualise how to paint it so I went about making it. I loved the process and found experimenting with new materials a real challenge and in the end hugely rewarding.
