About the art and the artist
Dirty Cop, Blind Sniper, Kaput Dogs, Full Void or Strike … Nuno Mega’s identities blend into the graphic records he leaves behind the city walls.
The mustachioed Mexican, will probably be his best known sticker and granted hima place in the urban art of Lisbon. He was born in Luanda and grew up in Santarém, returning from a scenario of war that would punctuate his work with some military references.
Later he studied industrial modeling and fashion design in order to explore new materials and techniques. He made a collection of shirts for men and names it Dirty Cop, the first of a series of identities that sign his works. He then begins a path to recycling and retrieves toys, household items, in fact, anything he can add value with a stencil and a spray can.
This is precisely the basis of the exhibition Stencils Mantras, a set of pieces reinvented by Nuno Mega and an exterior mural.
The exhibition Stencil Mantras can be seen from June 7 and continues Tings Lisbon’s mission – to create a space for art and Portuguese artists…
Like all our events we proviode the space for free and cover all costs. And all sales go directly to the artist.
