Environmentally-friendly Pelicans

Pelicans by Bordalo II, Lisbon, March 2020

This 3D mural is unmistakably the work of Bordalo II. His striking creations are made of garbage found in the city and he has the skill to turn them into art. These pelicans are a great addition to his ever-growing catalogue, and I think this was only completed about a week before I spotted it.

This piece was commissioned by the local Associação Mutualista Montepio and it pops out of a wall right next to the Elevator de Santa Justa. Getting a photo wasn’t easy as the crowds and queues for the lift never abate.

  1. He’s a very talented artist and a great recycler too. Love his artwork!
    Love this new piece, he has a few around Lisbon.
    Thanks for participating Debbie.


  2. We need this here, too!
    Once a year people are to get all the junk from the streets.
    I always wonder why, Those who dump it will never learn anyways, nor does the city!
    Sometimes I carry my junk for a kilometre or more.
    Great mural.
    Very artistic and maybe you reach people that way.


  3. This is simply stunning. And just yesterday I wasted a part of my life watching a clip on youtube about the 10 top reasons why not to visit Germany by an American halfwit and no. 2 was: “every wall is covered in graffiti”. a) not true b) I wish.
