Turns out Lisbon has been turned on to street art for some time. I spent time wandering around taking it in. Some are crude and scribbly, others are on an epic scale and use entire buildings as blank canvases. The Crono project is a large scale urban art project encouraging world-class artists to jazz up derelict buildings. Parts of the city have been designated as Galeria de Arte Urbana, authorised for painting.
Here’s a little gallery to whet your appetite.
And a map in case you want to cruise around and check it out yourself.
