The 3rd edition of “Conversas na Rua” (Translation: Conversations on the Street), which took place throughout the month of September 2017 in Amadora, is now showcasing quality works on the street by the artists Odeith, Kruella d’Enfer, Draw & Contra, Collective ALTURA, Ana Dias & Nuno Alecrim.
Organized by Amadora City Council “Conversas na Rua” is an urban art initiative that seeks to overcome the negative stigma often associated with the city, as well as to incite expression through the transformation of the urban landscape, to promote the Portuguese artists – emergent or veterans, to establish contact with the community and to enhance the artistic, historical, social and cultural identity heritage of Amadora.

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.

Artists Utopia and Nomen had the initiative to organize a street art and graffiti festival, called “Graffiti in Amoreiras“, that took place at the great wall of Amoreiras in Lisbon, Portugal. This non-profit project featuring 14 invited artists (and some other who joined the event), renewed the historic wall and left to the graffiti lovers in general, some large-scale paintings, covering an area of 750m2. The event happened in May 2017 but you can recap the work of the artists below.
