SAMI'S COLOURFULWORLD

Monday Mural - Old man

Painted in 2015 during the street art festival -Muraliza Cascais,  by  the Portuguese street artist Samina, on the corner of Travessa Visconde da Luz and Rua Afonso Sanchez in the town of Cascais, Portugal.




  

João Samina, a self-taught artist, was born in Setúbal, in 1989, and started his street art career at the age of 14. He discovered stencil art and from 2010 started to produce bigger and better works of art.
His style reminds me of Daniel Eime's style, another Portuguese artist who also uses stencils and paints black and white faces.
