Hazul Luzah

Recently the POWERS THAT BE in the Porto Town Hall decided to rid downtown of the graffiti found on buildings. Now I have nothing against that, but they could be more discriminating in what they consider graffiti. Personally I think they could get rid of all those ridiculous tags and scribbles that really do “ruin” buildings. There is another type of graffiti, if you can even call it that, that I consider art. I’m not alone in this, there are a lot of people that feel the same way. There is an artist here in Porto called Hazul and to me and many others his creations are considered ART not graffiti. The POWERS THAT BE at the Town Hall, however don’t feel that way, and so they’ve been painting over a lot of his creations.

I managed to take a picture of this one last Saturday, and I’ve posted here about some of his other creations. He uses abandoned buildings as his canvas, at least it brightens up the place….
