'BULA' by Artist SAMINA(Portugal)

By MISTAKER MAKER

In July 2019, the Santarém City Council and Santarém Culture challenged Mistaker Maker to talk about freedom, to portray freedom, to honor the women and men of Santarém, the city that became the cradle of the April Revolution.

At dawn on April 25, 1974, those heroes, led by Salgueiro Maia, would leave the old Cavalry Practice School (EPC), heading to Lisbon, to forever change the history of Portugal.

SAMINA is an architect, varied artist, since his youth he was in contact with the world of arts, mainly drawing and painting.

SAMINA’s been on a constant search for new excitements and experiences on each work he makes, putting together a language of his own, using stencil techniques with other art elements from his own roots in street art, graphic design, painting and architecture.

The EPC was undoubtedly the engine of April 25th and this symbolism deserves to be preserved in this symbolic place. The chaimite that carried Salgueiro Maia, the Bula, is equally immortalized on the walls of the old quarter, by the talent of the artist SAMINA.
