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.

Good news for the urban art lovers, the Museum of Urban and Contemporary Art of Cascais will open to the public in the spring of 2018. This new museum is a result of a partnership between Cascais Municipality and the urban artist Vhils – Alexandre Farto and financed from public and private sources.
It will be a dynamic and innovative museum located in the Museum Quarter in Cascais, near the marina, focused on promoting contact between the general public and the work of visual artists behind the global contemporary urban art movement, celebrating an unique creative energy that breathes new life into our cities and redefines our perception and enjoyment of art.
The biggest names in the contemporary art scene namely Vhils, Banksy, Shepard Fairey (Obey Giant) or the french JR will be represented in the permanent collection of the museum.
It is one of the few museums in the world exclusively dedicated to the understanding and appreciation of this multidisciplinary art.
