Secret tribute behind the can street art…

In Teatro Metaphora I spent 1/3 of the time making doors for local bar in the center of Câmara de Lobos. You should know that the doors are not random at all 🙂

First of all, the doors are made from recycling aluminum cans collected by volunteers and coworkers, and also by local community and bar workers around of the city during previous half year. The association has its own secret method how to change colorful trash in dinamic elements that actualy remind mosaic in the final result.




As you can guess – it’s pretty hard work to get this amazing final effect!


But we got it and we can be pround – it’s gonna to stay in the city during years 🙂

One thing is to spread recycling creative ideas around the local community and all of the world using non-formal education methods.

The second thing behind of this can street artwork it’s to honour Mr. Agostinho Reis, founder of this local place with famous poncha and real hero of the sea.

I’ll let you alone with his story, let him speak again…
