Monday Mural - African Queen

Another mural from Portugal, painted by Ivo Santos aka "Smile" on the side of an apartment building in the residential area of Torre, Cascais. 
I couldn't find out anything about the artist but I presume he might have been born in one of the former Portuguese colonies in Africa. Isn't she a beauty?

  1. I agree. She's a genuine beauty. I wonder what the 404 stands for. Could it be the address of the building, perhaps?

    1. I'm not sure Elizabeth, I wondered that too afterwards...but I doubt it's the street address as the streets there are small and don't have that many buildings...
