Monday Mural - Peace and Happiness

For the start of the New Year, I thought this simple mural with some of the words we all wish each other would be perfect -  Peace, Happiness, Dream, Love, Family, Imagination, Liberty, Friendship, Energy, Respect, happy, cool.

Painted for the art festival Muraliza 2016 at Rua do Congo (Congo Street) in Bairro da Torre (Torre Suburb) of Cascais, Portugal.

A lettering workshop was held to involve young people from the neighbourhood, and this facade was painted by 12 kids with their favourite positive words, reflecting the present and future of their community.

For other murals from around the world please follow this link.

Wishing you all a Happy New Year with lots of health, peace and happiness.
