Porto street art scene has flourished not only in number but also in terms of quality. It is not by chance that Porto is referred as one of the best destinations in what concerns the European circuit of street art.
Because what we want to show you is not next to the other, we thought that in a hilly city, the easiest way to do it is with E-Bikes. First, we will give one E-bike to each traveller and we will brief you about the experience and how to use the e-bikes in the city. Then, when everyone is feeling comfortable with the e-bikes, it is time to start riding.
Street art started in the 90s connected with the movement of hip hop. Most of the artists started like “writers” changing quickly to graffiti. It was used as a way to bring up the problems of a community and the social injustice becoming an important tool to activism.
This is a tour though the contemporary side of Porto, a city known for its layers of history that ended up serving as a source of inspiration to many artists. We will show you the amazing street art as well as the different techniques used in each form of urban art.
We will be inviting you to understand more of the street art evolution, only possible due to the persistence of some Portuguese artists and different artistic groups, that had to deal with repression until the beginning of the government of our current city mayor.
