Urban Art in Porto: short historic overview

In general terms , one may say that Urban art in Portugal was born with the April 1974 Revolution, taking on a markedly political expression in the following years. In the last decade of the 20th century, influenced by American culture, it has moved away from its political content and new murals overlap with the old specimens of the post-revolution era.
The new street art, carried out  by young people, individually or in groups, begins to populate the city with artistic records of great visual impact and full of creativity. However, it was an activity considered illegal, marginal and carried out clandestinely.

Street Art: an artistic expression heartened by the city

In 2014, following the attibution of legal  authority to the municipalities to regulate graffiti, the city of Porto promoted a great exhibition – Street Art AXA, where 22 artists, national and foreign, participate. Since then, the city has embraced this artistic activity, with the support of the City Council, which defined its intention to “contribute positively to the dissemination and awareness of this artistic creation in an urban context, encouraging its practice in an authorized institutional framework “.
