Monday Mural - The old man and the sea

Right next to the mural from last week's post, was this mural of a gray bearded pipe smoking fisherman surrounded by the see waves, ropes, surfers, lighthouse, all relating to the former fishermen's village of Cascais .
Painted by Youth One (real name - Adalberto da Costa Brito, he was born in Angola), the mural can be found at Travessa Visconde da Luz in Cascais (Portugal).






And the poem painted on the pink wall that I thought was part of the mural with the knitting grandmother actually belongs to this mural.

"The village and the beach made the fisherman go to sea, while the seagull flies sliding in the sky, following the boat ready to anchor. The lighthouse lights the way, bringing adventurers, while the wave grows, making the soul smile. The sun gives life to the sky, joy reborn...
Deep down, we are all a part of everything.  YOUTH"

  2. How wonderful. That fisherman mural is simply incredible. I am always in awe of how you find these, but this one sort of fell into your lap, so to speak. It's a genuine beauty, though.

  7. I love those yellow raincoats, so commmon also at the ocean here. The poem is very fitting, too, with the seagull :-)

  10. Awesome mural that, lot of work gone into it. Read your comment on another blog on swans. In the UK they don't bite, I've fed them by hand a few times but they will go for you if they think you will harm their signets.

    1. Thanks Bill. I was bitten by a swan in Germany many years ago when I was offering him bread, so I just assumed they were all a bit vicious.

  11. Very striking! The artist has captured the colors, movement, and turmoil of the sea - as well as the steely-eyed confidence of the fisherman who knows he can conquer it all because he's done it so many times!
