Monday Mural - between Holland and Portugal

On one of my walks around Lisbon I came across this mural near the Rua de Sao Bento not too far from the Portuguese Parliament in the suburb of Sao Bento.
It was painted by Portuguese artist Pedro Campiche also known as AkaCorleone and Dutch artist Hedof, to commemorate the 75 years of air services between Lisbon and Amsterdam by KLM.

  1. :-) Love especially the last pic!
    The mural reminds me a bit of our Happy Rizzi House.

    1. That's right, similar style. I had seen that house on blogs before, it wasn't that way, or maybe not there when we lived in Braunschweig.

  3. How refreshing, and to think, you find wonderful murals wherever you go. Loved the air hostess in particular. This mural is adorable and the artist seems to take pride (and a bit of humor) in his art.

  8. That's fascinating, a subtle reference to KLM. I'd have expected them to have KLM written somewhere - I like it that they don't!

    1. Thanks Wren. The only allusion seems to be the light blue plane. And then the Dutch narrow buildings.

  10. I realized Corelone achieved this dense image using only 8 colors. Limiting the colors seems to highlight the wonderful rhythm of the composition. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
