Public Art Gallery of Quinta do Mocho (Part 1)

Alegria del Prado

Loures City Hall (in Lisbon) has been affirming itself in recent years as a national and international reference concerning street art or as some will call it public art. One of the examples of this investment in street art projects is Quinta do Mocho, a social housing quarter in Loures.

Currently, Quinta do Mocho is not just a social neighborhood: now its buildings are canvas for Public Art. Since October 2014, Quinta do Mocho became a Public Art Gallery, and we can count over 64 murals executed in the neighborhood.

On average, between 1,500 to 2,000 liters of paint and 40 to 50 cans of spray are used to paint the murals and the artists take up to 2-4 days to complete the paintings.

Until now the artist who took more time executing a mural was the artist Utopia, who painted for a week, from nine in the morning to eight in the evening. You can check out his work below.

Guided visits to this public art gallery are often held, you just need to show up in Casa da Cultura de Sacavém at 10AM on the last Saturday of each month.

You can check out some of the murals done in the neighborhood until October 2017, below.
