We are an enthusiastic team with different people from different parts of the world but who have one thing in common: we're passionate about art and street art.
Our project started in Lisbon over 5 years ago. We were the first to share our knowledge about the Lisbon’s street art and graffiti scenery and since then we only kept trying to improve and be better.
We want to be the most relevant, updated and respectful source of Street Art in Lisbon. But we want to do that by contributing to the art-scenery of Lisbon as part of the money we earn goes to our yesyoucan.spray collective.
With that money we organize paint sessions and workshops with artists from, based in, and passing through Lisbon.
We will show you Lisbon in a different, artistic, fun way. We will share stories about the artists, their different techniques and styles. We will teach about the history and culture of Lisbon through what is written on the walls.
And we'll do that so we can contribute to the glocal art(ist) community.
Exploring this weird and wonderful world through what is written on the walls - her lifephilosophy is all about engaging an interACTive, intercultural and interARTive dialogue. After discovering several countries around the world, this Belgian beerlover decided to settle in one of the most colourful and exciting cities of Europe.
In love with literature, music and visual arts, her studies in Cultural Programming led her to grafitti and street art which are now one of her favorite research themes.
She is from Bordeaux (France) but also feels Portuguese. Indeed, she lived in Porto, in Coimbra and recently arrived in Lisbon. Fascinated by the beauty of this city and interested by the world of street art, she joined our team to share with you her curiosity and make you discover Lisbon through a new perspective. She is studying gender sociology and political science.
Kurtz started painting in 1995 all over Portugal. From there he moved on to several other countries like Switzerland, Ireland, Spain and France. While on the move he founded a crew called one major click (1mc).
Later he returned to Portugal where he kept painting with local and foreign artists and signing his works as Amor. His paintings can be found all around Lisbon.
YESYOUCAN.SPRAY is a social profit and intercultural initiative that works as a collective of enthusiasts from different parts of the world which has organized and managed the Lisbon Street Art Tours for several years.
Our backgrounds include an artistic education, an anthropological background, a cultural-scientific approach, a graphic design vision, an international human rights watch, a do-it-yourself ethos… but above all, we all aim to combine our diverse viewpoints to create a new dynamic within the graffiti/street art scene through paint sessions and local projects to explore, experience and express in the lovely city of Lisbon.
We work to create a supportive and socio-cultural platform for anyone and everyone to manifest through artistic interventions in-the-streets with a multitude of tools. But we also scout through dialogue artists’ reasoning for representing themselves in the cityscape.
