Artur Bordalo (Lisbon, 1987), a.k.a. Bordalo II, follows the motto “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure”. Bordalo uses in his works recycled materials that have survived their original purpose, as a declaration of sustainability and ecological awareness.
The Racoon (2015)
“The Raccoon” is one of my favorite works from Bordalo II ( @b0rdalo_ii ) and my guests, while touring the Belem area, have the opportunity to appreciate this stunning street art installation. The Raccoon is made of parts of old cars.
This work was conceived to be seen clearly from a distance and becomes blurred when the observation point comes closer. In this small video, you may see the Raccoon going from blurred to clear as the tuk-tuk moves away, a kind of effect causing usually a lot of “wows” in the rear seats.
The Raccoon of Bordalo can be seen in Belem, near the CCB. Included in tour “Street Art”
The Fox (2017)
This fox is decorating the ruins of an old warehouse in the industrial zone near the river. This work is made out of recycled plastic chairs.
The Fox of Bordalo can be seen in 24th July Av, not far from Time Out Market. Included in tour “Street Art”.
The Honey Bee (2016)
This bee can be visited in Lx Factory and is made of plastic ducts, shower curtains, car bumpers and wire nets.
Included in tour “Street Art”.
