EXTRA WOOL | SAMINA

extra WOOL - PROMO 02SAMINA is the first highlight of this EXTRA WOOL!

He will work in the historic city center (Rua das Portas do Sol No. 87) and there he will leave his聽unique brand, a聽work that聽looks for different and exciting ways to express his vision of space and that constantly challenges the technique of stencil, resulting in complex and exciting works, which also reflect the conflict between the rigid geometry and natural way of being human.

A work聽that beacon from its roots in architecture, his interest in graphic design and years of constant search for something new on the streets of Lisbon.

Since 2010, he has collaborated with countless artists in several outstanding projects that took place in countries like聽Spain, France, Netherlands, Brazil, Turkey and India.

PT |聽SAMINA 茅 o primeiro dos destaques deste EXTRA WOOL!

Ele ir谩 trabalhar bem no centro hist贸rico da cidade (Rua das Portas do Sol n潞 87) e por l谩 deixar谩 a sua marca 煤nica, um trabalho que procura diferentes e empolgantes formas de expressar a sua vis茫o de espa莽o e que permanentemente desafia a t茅cnica do stencil, resultando em obras complexas e emocionantes, que reflectem igualmente o conflito entre a geometria r铆gida e a forma natural do ser humano.

Um trabalho que se baliza entre as suas ra铆zes na Arquitectura, o seu interesse pelo Design Gr谩fico e os anos de constante procura de algo novo pelas ruas de Lisboa.

Desde 2010, colaborou com in煤meros artistas em v谩rios projectos de destaque que decorreram em pa铆ses com Espanha, Fran莽a, Pa铆ses Baixos, Brasil, Turquia e 脥ndia.
