Between the 28th of January and 1st of February, Portugal presented itself at FITUR 2015 (International tourism fair of Madrid) and featured the ‘themes’ why all world should visit Portugal. Among cork, wine and music festivals, they highlighted for the first time the portuguese urban art.
WOOL saw featured one of the pieces from WOOL ON RESIDENCE, the one by Bordalo II, elected one of the most beautiful from 2014.
We were invited also to take one artist to work in loco in the stand of Portugal (which was awarded Best International Stand by the way!) and under the theme of ‘celebration’. We took with us Add Fuel, chosen because of his distinctive style, full of tradition and ‘portugality’.
A big thank you to Turismo de Portugal ( Visit Portugal ), Teresa, Adelaide, Fernando, Gilberto, Maria Vale, Rodrigo, Maria and all the rest of the team, for the good times and the wonderful experience!!
While we are at Madrid (re)presenting Portugal at FITUR, we take the opportunity to announce that on the next 6th of February will inaugurate the Exhibition of WOOL ON RESIDENCE at LAR Gallery, a partnership with LAC – laboratory of creative activities. There you can see all the pieces that our 5 artists, Add Fuel, Bordalo II, Mr.Dheo, ±MaisMenos± and Tamara Alves, produced while in Covilhã, photos of the murals they did in the historical center of the city, among other walls, some made in 2011 for the 1st edition of WOOL and others made between editions, in other parts of the country and abroad!
Not to miss, between the 6th of February and 6th of March!!
