This initiative is part of a strategy of the Lisbon City
Council, through GAU – Galeria de Arte Urbana, to continue to develop spaces
for free painting in the city, accessible to national and international
artists, and to the general public.
Located in a recently refurbished garden and with a total
area of 4,300 square metres (m2), this area brings together 14 free painting
walls designed to welcome different looks and artistic proposals and also a
sports area, the 'Pump Track Skate'.
The work that has been carried out by GAU and the
municipality, in conjunction with sport, urbanism and green spaces, the Parish
Councils and the different partners, “has allowed the creation in the city of a
set of requalified structures and equipment that seek to regenerate the Lisbon
neighbourhoods”, says the municipality.
