Art truly is everywhere you look… It just depends what you are looking for. I see art in the the literal sense, through murals and paintings, but also in people and places. Lisbon, as a city, was a work of art in itself.
Two friends enjoying lunch on a quiet Sunday afternoon. I quickly fell in love with the bicycle, flowers, and painting of the woman with the traditional Portuguese guitar.
This alley was my favorite discovery I made while wandering the streets of Alfama. It was covered in plants and random colorful collages. There was also a back and white cat sitting on a chair, bathing in the sun. I think he appreciated the artwork just as much as I did!
The contrast of old and new. Who is to say that one is more beautiful than the other? Although I do wish I knew what the graffiti says.
A graffitied truck parked in front of an exquisitely built building- the perfect contrast.
Most people choose to just look at the view of the city, I choose to look at the graffiti surrounding it as well.
Hand-painted tiles on the side of a building that highlight the Portuguese lifestyle in Alfama.
My three favorite things- coffee, wine, and paintings!
I am always mentioning this, but, art is what you make of it. Start opening your eyes to view everything you see as its own work of art. You never know what you will learn to appreciate in the process.
