and here´s Évora…

ImagemImagemImagemImagemImagemImagemImagem

More or less one month ago i was invited along Kruella and a really nice group of young artists to show some illustrations in Évora, at a beautiful gallery!

some times these shows can be boring because we send some works and sometimes we get pictures of the opening, but that´s it. This time was different, all the artists were invited to come and stay for a few days in this chilled out town in Alentejo, the group was awesome, the organisation was a bunch of nice people and we even had a mascott, the cool cow MU!
the show was super nice, we made new connections, had the chance of showing some less known works and honestly, it felt like mini vacations!

thank you a lot MU guys and thank you fellow artists for the good time!

ps: some of the prints you see from me and Kruella will be available very soon at the STEPPIN STONE shop!

featured on REINVENTING SCREENPRINTING!

Few things in life top the feeling you get when you put your hands on a book you´re featured on…
Well this was no exception, i´ve been waiting for this book for a while now, i was still in Barcelona when i got the invitation to participate on a book collecting some of the most exciting screenprint projects around the globe, featuring such masters as Shepard Fairey, Little Friends of Printmaking, Gary Taxali and much more of my idols, so when it arrived this morning i was happy as a kid on christmas morning unwrapping the package from London…
grab one here!

ORFEU WAS A BLAST!

Some time ago i was invited along with Kruella D´Enfer to participate ina a massive collective show created by a collective called ORFEU, which i had never heard about before, so it looked cool, but i had no expectations about it…

I had planned only to show screenprints from previous shows, but i got “dragged” by Angela´s creative fever and ended up showing 2 new pieces which where fun as hell to make, and some one of a kind greeting cards, yeah, i stole the idea from her cards…

First off all, the space is amazing, a two floors huge old warehouse, in the center of Lisboa, so it was really impressive to see it filling up as the night went on!
The event was dope as hell, showing amazing artists, starting with some nice lectures from Dj Ride and Alva but the rest of the night dedicated to sushi, moscatel and partying with loads of friends who showed up, as a cool line up of djs gave a nice soundtrack to a great night!
congrats fellas, i want to see more of this!

SABICHÃO at GALERIA DAMA AFLITA!


this one was to the last minute but it was worth the while as it made us visit Porto and attend the opening of SABICHÃO, a super collective show that i was invited along with Kruella D´Enfer, Oker, Braulio Amado, Salão Coboi and much more dope artists to show some works inspired by this amazing old school board game…

The opening was cool as hell, the rain didn´t stop people from attending the show, it was nice to meet new artists, eat that amazing cake and drink wine while i tried to understand where could i eat the best francesinha in town…
we hope to be there again soon, thanks a lot Dama Aflita for the invitation!
