Artur Bordalo, better known as Bordalo II, clearly inherited his artistic flair from his grandfather, Real Bordalo, a fine artist who painted scenes of Lisbon.

However, Bordalo II is a little less traditional, using mixed media, namely trash and recycled materials, to make his impressive and colourful creations. In this way, he shows his own interpretation of city life, and transforms rubbish into beautiful pieces of art, in places which would usually have gone overlooked. His 3D art creates a unique visual effect, and in some of his works featuring Lisbon streets and trams, his grandfather’s influence is clear.

Most recently, his bright piece named Owl Eyes graced a wall in Covilhã, Portugal, as an exhibit of the WOOL festival, which was held in October and celebrated all kinds of urban art. You can see more of Bordalo II’s street art here.
