LISBON IN BERLIN: In 2011 Wieden+Kennedy Amsterdam collaborated with the Portuguese street artist Vhils, to create a series of street murals that captured the faces of some of Berlin’s modern day pioneers. The Art Project was an element in the “Go Forth” revitalisation campaign for Levis’. AND our first encounter with Vhils – Click Pix for more info.[/caption]
From MadGay got to know all about who did what and why. He knew all the secrets, the technics behind each piece, references to works in other countries, to references music etc.It was MadGay who introduced us to Vhils who at that time had a couple of walls that were part of a ‘secret’ campaign financed by Levis. MadGuy new some of the portrayed persons 🙂
Underdogs is a cultural platform based in Lisbon, Portugal that aims at creating space within the contemporary art scene for artists connected with the new languages of urban-inspired graphic and visual culture, fostering the establishment of partnerships and collaborative efforts between creators, cultural agents, exhibition venues and the city, contributing to establish a close relationship between these and the public. Created in 2010 and consolidated in its present form since 2013, the Underdogs project rests on three complementary areas: an art gallery; a public art programme; and the production of original and affordable artist editions.
