Mural with Gonçalo MAR

Gonçalo MAR

Rua Mouzinho de Albuquerque, Portimão
Rua de Olivença, Portimão

April 2021



As part of the partnership between LAC and the Municipality of Portimão in the “March Youth” program, the artist Gonçalo MAR painted a mural on the 24th and 25th of April at the intersection of Rua Mouzinho de Albuquerque and Rua de Olivença in Portimão.



"When I realized it was a wall in a cemetery in Portimão, I was a little resentful, because in my idea, there is a certain sensitivity when we approach more fragile subjects, such as death and what can arise from it in terms of discomfort and visual judgment.


I decided to use my character of the Tourist to, in a way, make contemplation more transversal, that is, I continue to tell the story of my tourist who defines me and my work.
I create a bridge between the character and the place, accepting as an idea that, that place serves as a starting point for another trip and that our ethereal forms, just take the form of these my hand fish to continue the rest of the trip as tourists who we are, wandering and nomadic in this world and in the next. "
