Part of the exterior wall of the Portimão cemetery will benefit from an artistic-community intervention by the hands of the artist Gonçalo MAR and all those who want to be associated with the original project “Fresque dos Vizinhos”, which will take place between 24 and 29 April.
Integrated into Youth Initiative Support Program, this action includes a preparation workshop on the 24th and 25th in charge of the artist, limited to the participation of 40 people
(minimum age of 16) and with free registration, followed by the painting of the mural between April 26th and 29th. Gonçalo MAR has experience in graffiti and specializes in developing works of the genre, proposing to resort to characteristic elements of the city.
The intervention scheduled for the end of this month will take place in the part of the wall of the cemetery of Portimão located in the corner of Rua Olivença and Rua Mouzinho de Albuquerque. To participate, registration can be made with the Sport and Youth Division of the city council, by e-mail [email protected] or by telephone 282470797.

On the same occasion, the artist Kruella D'Enfer will paint between the 22nd and 27th of April the Cardosas wall, next to the viaduct, «with the objective of requalifying one of the main entrances of the city of Portimão, making it more appealing inclusive ”, says the portimonense chamber. Portuguese illustrator Kruella D'Enfer promises to "take advantage of the natural elements that exist in the selected section of the wall to, in some way, give continuity to the dreamlike figures and forms that so characterize her artistic style".
