The municipality of Loures, in the suburbs of Lisbon, just organised a large street art festival reuniting around 80 local and international artists.
For this occasion and given recent events, I decided to spread a message of love and unity! My mural, entitled “Together”, pictures a person with both light and dark skin, buttoning a shirt with both African and European patterns. Bracelets from different religions are hanging from his wrists.
Let’s be united against terror, discrimination and violence. Across all cultures, nations, religions, genders and politics.

City of Colours is back this year again as one of the UK’s biggest street art festivals. Taking place in Birmingham for a weekend, the event featured live art, music, workshops, shows, street food and much more.
I painted a portrait inspired by Willow Smith – with headphones plugged into her heart.
