Porto Street Art: Connecting The City

By Gail Aguiar @ImageLegacy

Porto street art by Hazul | model: Jessica Mezey

I moved to Portugal from a city with a vibrant street art scene (Toronto), but I feel a more personal connection with the street art of Porto. After nearly two years of photographing it up close, I’ve come to believe it has everything to do with the street artists themselves. I’ve met none in person (yet), but I view them as having a personal connection with their city through their work. This abstract characteristic of connectivity is the magic ingredient behind art itself, is it not?
