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.
