Porto Street Art By Hazul On Rua De Trás

Hazul street art in Porto

I’ve photographed street art in many cities, but in Porto it has become something of a pursuit. I typically capture it with my phone, and the pictures end up in Instagram, not here. But I do photograph the more elaborate ones, the murals, and the ones I like the most with my DSLR to show more detail.

I post a great deal of Hazul‘s work in Porto because he is by far the most prolific of the local street artists, stylistically he’s my favourite, his work is easily recognizable, and I believe he’s been at it for the longest. According to this Underground Paris interview with Demian Smith last April, Hazul started painting street art in Porto in 1997. I think it’s just a matter of time before I bump into him on the street, but since I’m not entirely sure what he looks like, I’ve probably passed by him a dozen times already and didn’t realize it.

Hazul currently has an illuminated artwork installation commissioned by the city beside the Christmas tree, which I mentioned yesterday. It was too crowded last Saturday for me to shoot there, but I see on his Facebook page that it will remain until January 10, which gives me more time to see it after we’re back in Portugal.
