Portuguese artist Nuno Viegas have recently created a mural for Muro Festival in Lisbon. Muro Festiva is an event by Galeria De Arte Urbana which added a huge amount of new giant murals to the capital of Portugal in the area of Parque das Nações.
For this wall measuring 36 x 7 meters, Nuno Viegas experimented playing with the throwies in the background to give it another pop to his work.
Nuno Viegas, also known as Metis, is a Portuguese artist and founder of the Policromia Crew art collective, who began his artistic journey with graffiti in 1999. His work presents us with a contrast between the visually aggressive and sometimes dirty reality of traditional graffiti, and his own peaceful and clean representation of that same reality. The approach to this theme stands as a continuous tribute to all those who dedicate part of their lives to this art form: graffiti writers who keep tradition alive in a time where the definition of graffiti tends to be blurred and mixed with street art. Since 2016 he has been a constant presence in the international urban art scene, working on a variety of projects and showing his work on walls and in art galleries across the globe.
