Lisbon Chronicles | Street Art at LX Factory




Lisbon is well known for its street art, presenting allover the city great examples of the work of both Portuguese and foreigner artists. If you appreciate street art, maybe the names of Vihls and Bordalo II are familiar to you, as they have works all over the world. While Vihls is particularly known for carving faces on building facades, Bordalo II creates amazing works of art from trash.

The trendy LX Factory, in Alcântara, is a creativity hub installed on an old and abandoned factory from the nineteenth century. Today, is house for numerous companies related to art, fashion and design. It holds an hostel, several restaurants, cafés and shops that serve both visitors and the people who work there. Along with the regular events, shows and markets that take place at LX Factory, visitors can enjoy over a dozen works of street art scattered all over the grounds from artists like Bordalo II, Mário Belém, Hugo Makarov, Miguel RAM, Mariana Dias Coutinho, Mais Menos, Derlon (from Brazil), Millo (from Italy) and many others.
