Details: WOOL – Covilhã Urban Art Festival, that merged in 2011 in Covilhã, for various reasons beyond our control, didn’t get more support or funding for a second edition, so obviously we searched for other geographies, new projects and new formats.
The first place that welcome us was LXFactory in Lisbon (as Rua Rodrigues Faria, 103 – www.lxfactory.com), undeniably the most creative and artistic center of the capital, which was installed in an old flourmill and later printer industry, a place filled with old and gray facades.
This piece is one from the 5th edition of WOOL ON TOUR. Uivo created the figure of a giant involved in a simplistic nature environment.
Biography: UIVO is Gonçalo Fialho, an illustrator and graphic designer from Lisbon. Also shares a passion for urban space, an illustrator of large formats. Colorful and sinister beings that multiply, left in forests and empty spaces, superheroes flying among the clouds dominating monsters, elements of human nature and the nature of things. Thus characterizes the growing universe of UIVO.
