  • 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. We went to Abrantes, where we joined the group of “artists” invited to the 2nd edition of 180 Creative Camp from Canal 180 . We took with us two Portuguese street artists, CORLEONE and SAMINA, in an attempt to reveal and portray two different artistic courses, academic backgrounds, techniques, languages and styles, a feature of this universe of Street Art. For 7 days and with more than 50 field artists we carried out two workshops: one of “stencil cutting” and another of illustration, a collaborative street art activity in a total of five signature murals always with the help and assistance of the local population and participants.
  • Biography: My name is Pedro Campiche (AKACORLEONE), I belong to the amazing ´85 generation and i´m an illustrator and graphic designer originally from Lisboa, Portugal, but currently living and working in Caldas da Rainha, a cool town near Lisbon, after a year living in Barcelona, Spain. Oh no, is he another designer with a graffiti influence? that´s right, painting walls and running from dogs also gave me the addiction to typography, color, painting, drawing all day, planning things in advance, and mostly it gave me a chance to express myself without boundaries, something i try to apply to may daily life and work. In this epic struggle to become a full-time illustrator i´m always divided between my love for vectors and my absolute passion for markers, ink, watercolours, moleskines doodling and screen printing, so i try to incorporate both digital and handmade elements in my work! Besides being obsessed with everything visual, i´m a sneaker head, a toy collector, a bike rider, a graffiti lover, a travelling addicted, awesome chef, comic enthusiast, movie buff, Polaroid fan, fun lovin´ criminal and ping pong champion wannabe...
