Graffiti Workshops. The workshops run in a 2 hour session with all material included where you will learn about the process and techniques needed to write a word or drawing of your choosing. These are an awesome bet for kids parties as they go bananas with the experience while having a very creative feel out of it. As for the workshop itself these usually run as: 1 - Introduction of both parties 2 - Brief guidance on the health and safety procedures 3 - Description and explanation on how to use the materials 4 - Theory on how graffiti came to be and its evolution 5 - Drawing styles and names 6 - Definition of what will be done 7 - Execution of the painting 8 - Group photo These workshops take place in a central, safe and legal location in Lisbon and Barreiro where I can offer an extra service (with extra fee) as a tour guide on showing some unique works of the local artists. They are aimed to be done in a fun and relaxing way to help people learn the different techniques / ways to use a spraycan and introduce them to the basic notions of what this culture represents.
I'm a graffiti Writter with a big love for making the walls become a bit more impactful and switching their greyness for vibrant colours. I got involved with the graffiti comunity in 2000 where I started to paint murals for myself while being self taught. In the meantime, while getting an education and working as a graphic designer, I started to evolve my illustrations and lettering skills into beautiful compositions while always supporting my peers sharing the creative processes along the way. Since 2017, while living in Cardiff (Wales) I started booking and hosting graffiti workshops to everyone who would be interested in having a fun and creative time. Today, I'm solely dedicated to create bold and creative visuals for murals, commissions as teaching others on how to learn all about graffiti and drawing on a bigger size.
Spray paint, spray caps, emulsion paint and protective mask.
The participants will visit a legal and central location in Lisbon near Jardim São Pedro de Alcântara where to have the graffiti workshop. Walking distance to Chiado, Bairro Alto, Principe Real, Rossio and Restauradores areas.
Come prepared with old clothes/shoes. We´ll be using spray paint and it´s quite regular to be covered with paint or drips. Bring a friendly attitude and you'll leave with a smile.
