  • Details: In 2014, WOOL was once again invited to go to Figueira da Foz and curate all actions around Urban Art at the Fusing Culture Experience. Again, we manage to take there some os the most recognized artists in Portugal, that worked for 10 days, in murals, installation, customizations, ... Aitch and Saddo were invited to intervene in the signal tower of the Figueira da Foz port, in order to create their own representations of a fishermans life. The aim was to see represented the contrast between the interpretation of a man and a woman relating to what was asked. The result was a piece of saddo with a fairly loaded colors, which leads immediately to the world of the fantastic, not only by color but by using all those images, the representation of a male figure. AITCH's piece, presents a more sober palette of colors and with the representation of a female figure, the foam of the sea, surrounded by naturalistic elements, which brings us to the life that exists in the sea.
