Monday Mural - Rock On

On our visit to Lisbon last year, I walked around this avenue looking for a specific mural I had read about somewhere. 
I couldn't find it where it was meant to be, apparently the building had been demolished,  but I found this one instead.
I've been unable to find anything about the artist/s though, but the word Rotas at the bottom could be a clue. The mural is at Avenida (avenue) Marechal Gomes da Costa,  not far from the Staples office supplies shop in the suburb of Olivais, a 20 minutes walk from Lisbon's waterfront Aquarium.

If you like murals or have a mural you'd like to post, this meme is for you; just follow the Linky steps below.   Be sure to link back to this blog and visit your fellow posters.  Looking forward to your mural finds this week.  Thanks.

  2. A great lively piece, Sami.
    The perils of seeking fast-changing street art, but at least Lisbon is kind to us, as there's usually another piece not too far away.

  11. Ao vermos esta obra, quase que escutamos as sonoridades saídas da guitarra. Será Blues? Será Rock? É indiferente porque o som é electrizante, tal como a pintura:)
    Muito boa tarde!

  14. Heave forbid, Sami. How much later can I get? My apologies. I felt like I knew the musicians, although it was just my imagination. Lovely way to stumble into art.
