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: João Samina, known as SAMINA, had his first contacts with the world of art, especially drawing and painting, pretty early. With 14 years he began to place stickers on the streets and so hard, with discretion, in the world of urban art. For some years, he accompanied the movement and growth, self-taught, he has grown as an artist. It is during this time that he discovered the 'stencil', and in 2010 feels able to produce a greater and more consistent work. Since then, SAMINA remains in constant search for new stimuli and experiences in all the jobs he have done, uniting their language techniques 'stencil' provided with graphic elements from references in the world of urban art, graphic design, painting and architecture.
