What is it that makes Graça so special? Just returned from Denmark where we have spend 9 days with friends. The occasion was best friends 25 years wedding anniversary party. One of those parties where you meet people you haven’t seen since our friends last big party 5 years before – but not one of those parties where it takes a while, a lot of small talk and a few drinks to break the ice. Not at all! At most parties like these you are always met with the same questions: Whats up, where are you now, how’s life etc. This time was different. Very easy, very relaxed a lot of laughter and a lot of catching up… we all behaved like we’re back at the party we left 5 years before. With all our blogging, our life is not private. So most people at this party already knew about our beings and doings since last time we met. But it wasn’t Kathmandu and The Earthquake they we’re curious about – thanks God for that 🙂
Hazul Luzah is an artist whose work predominates on the streets of Porto, Portugal’s second city after Lisbon. He’s a self-taught graffiti writer, who has developed a style blending classic lettering, transformed into undecipherable, decorative calligraphic forms often mixed with imagery from nature. He describes his work as a “step-by-step” process, always building on his last work. Read the interview by Demain Smith, Under-Ground Paris, 8 April 2015While writing this story we found the interview in Under-Ground Paris where we can see Hazul lives in Porto. We don’t know him – or why he has so many works in and around Graça. But we’re looking forward to follow his art. And if he reads this and visits Graca we hope she will have time for a coffee.
