“Big Raccoon” graffiti in the Portuguese capital

Lisbon can rightly be considered as one of the European capitals of street art. There is even a government Department that deals with street art, so street artists are loved and appreciated there, not considered as vandals.

Bordalo II is a Portuguese artist and activist known for the “Trash Animals” chains of works. These are not just paintings on the walls, but three-dimensional installations made of garbage. Bordalo II draws public attention to the issue of ecology and its impact on animals.

Each piece of art needs from three to seven days for drawing. The artist says “I use my old and used things and try to connect it with sustainable development, as well as environmental and social awareness”.
