Mira, 2015 (Ribeira)

"Eime comes from the German word Eimer, which means bucket or pail. Over time I lost the R, merely to simplify writing and sound issues." Eime - (source, interesting interview)

Artur Bordalo

One of the most famous piece of street art of Porto although it's on the other side of the Douro, Vila Nova de Gaia. I have only one close-up of this work because I had my zoom was installed on my camera.

Borin in Lisbon in 1987, Bordalo II is a street artist denouncing the consumerism of today's society with the mantra "one man's trash is another man's treasure".

"I use my work to communicate ideas, fears and awareness about the global problems we face: global warming and climate change, mass extinction, deforestation, water scarcity, pollution ..." - Bordalo II (source, French)

Pastel

The last work, also in Vila Nova de Gaia, was done by the Argentine artist Pastel, Francisco Diaz from Buenos Aires with his floral pattern in pastel colors... Very nice...
