Brainstorm by João Maurício,  Lisbon,  May 2017

This wordy and watery tree is the work of Portuguese street artist João Maurício, aka Violant. It was painted as part of the 2014 Passeio Literário da Graça project that celebrates the works of a number of Portuguese writers.

This piece depicts a tree-come-book on which we see some verses by Florbela Espana (1894 – 1930), a Portuguese poet know for her erotic and feminist literary history.

    1. I’m always amazed by the work of street artists. The size and physical discomforts and challenges of street work does not reduce the amount of detail or artistic content.
