I was a bit surprised to see the amount of street art – and simple tagging – there was in Lisbon. It ranged from simple tags to an empty lot (Patio Dom Fradique) turned into an artist’s creative space (see the separate gallery, here: Pátio Dom Fradique, Lisbon (2017)).
I asked at my hotel about it and they said they see the graffiti as kids just expressing themselves. But apparently it’s not just kids – Meet the ‘graffiti grannies’ of Lisbon – The Guardian / Lisbon is Subverting Street Art Cliches Through Creative Workshops for Older People
