Details: The year 2013 was one of the busiest and most productive years of WOOL with the expansion to new geographies, seeking to answer the growing and challenging requests made by companies, cultural associations, municipal or private entities.
The month of August marked the date WOOL debuted at Figueira da Foz, curating and producing all Urban Art actions when it integrated the Fusing Culture Experience festival. This was a unique event in Portugal that brought together in a single space extensive to the entire city Music, Art, Sports and Food. It also marks the debut of Street Art activities in this city, which, in general and from past experience, means long months of preparation, conversations and negotiations with all government and private entities, in order to demystify many of the preconceptions around these artistic expressions, reaffirming and reinforcing the idea that this Art, when everything is well designed and built, is a huge capital gain for the city, at numerous levels, which I will later present.
From all the activities at Figueira da Foz city centre we point out 5 (five) author murals, a stencil workshop, a reflexion of our constant concern in the promotion, understanding and production of this Art. The artist Eime created a face with the stencil technique that is surrounded by a fusion of colors that fill geometric shapes, which resemble the pattern created by the tiles of the main facade of the house whose wall was intervened.
Biography: Eime combines stencil, dripping and realism to depict works showcasing strange characters, whose gaze is often enigmatic. He builds different hues and shades that compose these many portraits, appealing to a more manual art, in which sprays aren’t the only ones dominating. It’s not a coincidence that everything he does on the street or in the gallery is slightly dramatic, having a clear connection to scenography and theatre.
