Street art has long been a part of Lisbon’s culture


“Street art has long been a part of Lisbon’s culture. Until the 18th century, there was a tradition of all-white buildings. After the earthquake of 1755, richer areas began to incorporate colour and tiles into walls and pavements. Early graffiti was perhaps the poor man’s equivalent. Following the democratic revolution in 1974, this self-expression increased. Now, tags and scribbles cover the streets.”
