Recently, the L.A. based art collective Cyrcle. traveled to Lisbon, Portugal for a show titled Capture the Flag! : Conquer the Divide! Putting on display a new collection of works that depart in both style and theme from their previous solo last year (covered), the group took their talents overseas to the Underdogs Gallery.

Streets: Interesni Kazki (Lisbon, Portugal)

Ukrainian artistic duo, Interesni Kazki, were recently in Lisbon, Portugal, where they did their part for the UnderDogs Project.

Openings: Vhils – “Diorama” @ Vera Cortês

After seeding his home city of Lisbon with multiple murals (here, here, here & here) highlighting his unique skills, Vhils (filmed) has opened his show there at Vera Cortês Art Agency.

Streets: Vhils (Lisbon)

After putting a new piece up at the revolving mural project Le M.U.R in Paris (covered), Vhils headed home to work on another wall in Lisbon. In contrast to the one in France where he used techniques similar to what you see from the artist for some pieces in gallery shows, this new piece in Portugal sees his classic chisel and hammer technique. Coincidentally, it sounds like he is currently working on upcoming shows in Paris and Lisbon that looks like it might be going in […]

Streets: Conor Harrington (Lisbon)

Lisbon continues to be a hotbed for street activity recently (Brad Downey, Vhils), and it appears according to Stick2Target, a new piece from Conor Harrington’s (interviewed) has popped up. Haven’t seen any indoor work from the Cork born painter since the brilliant Hell’s Half Acre show (covered), so we are certainly curious as to what’s he been working on (mentioned here). More detailed pics of this piece after the jump…
