Street art in Fundão

The city of Fundão is not only about mouth-watering red-passion cherries. The lacework creations of the Polish artist Nespoon have surely put Fundão on the street art map in Portugal!

The work entitled “Fundão” was created by the Polish artist NeSpoon. The work of this artist consists of printing traditional laceworks, either in clay or upon walls. According to her vision, laceworks contain a genetic code, deeply embedded in each culture. We find symmetry in all laces, some sort of order and harmony.

This piece in particular has been developed in two stages: firstly, by researching and collecting characteristic lacework patterns and models of local villages of Fundão that were actually the basis of the laceworks drawing, later placed in this building.
