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 unique brand, a work that 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 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 Spain, France, Netherlands, Brazil, Turkey and India.

PT | SAMINA é o primeiro dos destaques deste EXTRA WOOL!

Ele irá trabalhar bem no centro histórico da cidade (Rua das Portas do Sol nº 87) e por lá deixará a sua marca única, um trabalho que procura diferentes e empolgantes formas de expressar a sua visão de espaço e que permanentemente desafia a técnica do stencil, resultando em obras complexas e emocionantes, que reflectem igualmente o conflito entre a geometria rígida e a forma natural do ser humano.

Um trabalho que se baliza entre as suas raízes na Arquitectura, o seu interesse pelo Design Gráfico e os anos de constante procura de algo novo pelas ruas de Lisboa.

Desde 2010, colaborou com inúmeros artistas em vários projectos de destaque que decorreram em países com Espanha, França, Países Baixos, Brasil, Turquia e Índia.

A few months ago, the PROFILE ME contacted LATA 65 to do their ‘profile’. 3 suggestions and an unexpected absence resulted in the registration of the mentor Lara Seixo Rodrigues and Luisa Cortesão, which is our biggest inspiration, our ambassador and many others alike that we find at every new conversation. :)

For those not familiar, we recommend the discovery of PROFILE ME, a beautiful team, specializing in portraits photographed and written, in personal and professional biographies, made on environment and well relaxed conversation, capture what people are.
