Street art in Estarreja

The municipality of Estarreja has created a consistent street art route that started with the inspiring work of Bordallo II, depicting a colourful Kingfisher out of waste. This work can be seen in the municipal park of Antuã, in Estarreja.

About Bordallo II

Along with worldwide acclaimed street artist VHILS, Bordallo II was considered by Street Art News one of the best urban artists in the world. This installation – “Guarda-rios” – depicting a colourful Kingfisher that can be seen in this beautiful region scored the 9th place on WideWalls Top100!

“I was born in Lisbon, 1987. I belong to a generation that is extremely consumerist, materialist and greedy. With the production of things at its highest, the production of “waste” and unused objects is also at its highest. “Waste” is quoted because of its abstract definition: “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure”. I create, recreate, assemble and develop ideas with end-of-life material and try to relate it to sustainability, ecological and social awareness.”

Bordallo II turns trash into art and he was surely caught the eye of the world!

ESTAU – Urban Art Festival of Estarreja

After the success of Bordallo II work “Guarda-rios”- created for the Birdwatching Fair ObservaRia – Urban Art Festival ESTAU has brought the community and art together through several ways, such as mural painting, installations, workshops, movies, conferences, guided visits and performances.
