<p>                                                                            <img alt="Gb_drapeau" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/73821/gb_drapeau.png"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Empty buildings</strong> and people forced to sleep rough, that’s the sad paradox you can observe in Lisbon. However, these empty buildings come back to life thanks to some <strong>street artists</strong>. Graffitis  graffiti, stickers, stencils, and all kinds of <strong>street art </strong>are part of Lisbon’s landscape. Sometimes <strong>activist</strong>, anti-system or simply a demonstration of the artist’s graphic style, Portuguese street art has become omnipresent !</p> <p>  </p> <p>                                                                            <img alt="Drapeau_portugais" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/73819/drapeau_portugais.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> Muitos prédios vázios, mas cada vez mais pessoas a dormir na rua. Aqui està um triste paradoxo em Lisboa. No entanto essas construções abandonadas conhecem uma segunda vida pelas iniciativas dos artistas de rua. Graffitis, stickers,  estampilhas e outras formas do street art fazem parte desses prédios da capital portuguesa.</p> <p> Quer seja de tipo militante, anti-sistema ou simplesmente uma demonstração do estilo gráfico do artista, o street art portugês tornou-se incontornável!</p> <p>  </p> <p>                                                                           <img alt="Gb_drapeau" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/73821/gb_drapeau.png"></p> <p>  </p> <p> During a first trip to <strong>Lisbon</strong>, we found out that there seemed to be a unique way of <strong>protesting</strong> against the <strong>2008 financial crisis</strong> and the austerity measures taken by the Portuguese government. Because it is not covered by mainstream media, it seems very important for us to talk about this way of prostesting through art. <strong>Never since</strong> the 1974 Carnation revolution (révolution des oeillets), have <strong>the walls of Lisbon had so many things to say</strong>. We would like to find out about this situation! So a second trip to Lisbon is being planned!</p> <p>  </p> <p>                                                                            <img alt="Drapeau_portugais" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/73819/drapeau_portugais.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> Numa primeira viagem a Lisboa, constatámos que existe uma maneira de contestar a crise éconómica de 2008 e as leis de austeridade impostas pelo governo. E indispensável dar enfase a esta situação em particular por ser desconhecida no resto do mundo. Nunca, desde da Revolução do 25 de Abril de 1974, as paredesda cidade falaram tanto. E necessário devendar os segredos desta problemática, e para isso, uma segunda viagem a Lisboa deve ser feita.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="9-blu-old-mural-in-lisbon-painted-may-2010-_-ba-street-art" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/68178/9-Blu-old-mural-in-Lisbon-painted-May-2010-_-BA-Street-Art.jpg"></p> <p> Blu – "Sucking the planet dry"</p> <p>  </p> <p>                                                                          <img alt="Gb_drapeau" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/73821/gb_drapeau.png"></p> <p>  </p> <p> This kind of protest art is getting more and more popular in the Portuguese capital. This <strong>increase</strong> in public interest is happening for a reason. In 2008, there were 4000 abandoned buildings in Lisbon, most of them used by street artists. Nowadays, even though the economic situation hasn’t changed much, street art is developing and is on its way to turning Lisbon into the new European street art capital.</p> <p>  </p> <p>                                                                           <img alt="Drapeau_portugais" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/73819/drapeau_portugais.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> Esta forma de arte contestadora tem vindo a crescer bastante desde há uns anos, e este facto não é e vão. No ano 2008, a capital portuguesa contáva com 400 vivendas abandonadas, a maior parte a ser utilizada por graffitistas. Se até hoje a situação financeira não evoluiu, o lado artístico fez de Lisboa a nova capital de Street art.</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> “Nowadays, <strong>Lisbon is one the European street art capitals</strong> just  like Berlin, London or even Bristol” claimed Laura Ramos, a Portuguese ex-journalist, in August 2012.  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Merry-crisis-in-portugal-by-stra" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/68161/Merry-Crisis-In-Portugal-by-STRA.jpg"></p> <p> STRA- "Merry crisis", décembre 2012</p> <p>  </p> <p> “These messages are the voice of a generation [...] Within six years, I saw street art evolving from a minor practice, restricted to certain parts of the city, into a wild movement close to a real trend / fashion phenomenon", said the ex-journalist Laura Ramos</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img height="307" src="http://videos.arte.tv/image/web/i18n/view/VIDEO-Vhils-jpg_1-7561862-imageData-5274066.jpg" width="546"><a href="http://videos.arte.tv/fr/videos/street-art-vhils-investit-lisbonne--7561828.html">Street Art : Vhils investit Lisbonne - videos.arte.tv</a><a href="http://videos.arte.tv">Arte</a></p> <p>  </p> <p>                                                                        <img alt="Gb_drapeau" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/73821/gb_drapeau.png">     </p> <p>  </p> <p> -<a href="http://www.alexandrefarto.com/index.php" target="_blank">Vhils</a>, a young and very promising street artist, sculpting monumental pieces on abandoned houses in Lisbon.  </p> <p>  </p> <p> Many questions are left unanswered : What is the underlying connection between the economic crisis and street art activism?
