A BREATH OF FRESH AIR - Murals

Featured In Mercado do Forno do Tijolo, Lisboa, Portugal

Item details

Early hours, late nights, new friends, and unexpected moments helped me understand the power of murals in connecting the unconnected. The municipality of Lisbon invited me to add something to a neighbourhood they were already breathing new life into. Across from the wall hung hundreds of balconies, with families getting comfortable while they watched the mural unfold. Kids played in the playground opposite, until their excitement got the better of them and the park was closed until I finished up. My first large wall, and an experience I will never forget.

Thanks to my new friends Susana, Claudia, Rui, Adamo, Augusto, and Marcia for creating something special.

Myneandyours is an artist uninterested in definition - in fact he’s confused by it. His work explores a continuing narrative seeking dialogue in the hope of stimulating curiosity about ourselves. Really he’s just speaking to his younger self asking him to take a step back and consider things. His bold visual language full of colour and misleading wit seems cheerful on the outside, but is laced with dark undertones riddling the viewer into a false sense of security.

He comes from no artistic institution, has had no formal artistic training, has never participated in a residency, has refused a label, but has interned for one of the most influential street artists of our time. He exists as an anomaly.
