Graffiti doesn’t appeal to everyone

The other evening I happen to look out of the window, and spotted two street artists at work. And not any ole street artist at work, but the Algarvian Sen and I presume one of the Bluba crew. They had returned to complete a creation that has been in progress for some time.

Street Artists at night

I suspect the lengthy gap between when they had first started this work and this return was due to cost. Street art is an expensive hobby, and whilst Sen does get paid for some work I think it highly unlikely that anyone was paying for this wall to be brightened up. We were amazed as just how quickly they worked. All of the white blanks you can see above were filled with colour overnight. They did though return the following morning to add a few white lines.

Their work may not be as ‘pretty’ as the extraordinary piece at the opposite end of town, and perhaps their crew tag dominates some of their creations. However I rather like the colour and spontaneity on this wall, and it isn’t as though this wall was beautiful before. It also definitely isn’t ‘bombing’.

I can’t help but smile at the Looney Tunes characters, who though is the boy in the Tshirt? He appears twice. Do you recognise the character?

He looks happy!

  1. I enjoy good ‘wall-art’ graffiti like this, but was surprised when we stayed in Estoril this summer that there’s a lot of the not so good stuff on many of the historic buildings and even on the outsides of the trains!
