New mural "Double Double Bass" by Zesar Bahamonte for MURO festival in Lisbon, Portugal.
MURO Street Art Festival is an initiative of GAU (Galeria de Arte Urbana), a project of the Department of Cultural Heritage for the city of Lisbon, Portugal.
MURO is the name of our Street Art Festival, which means wall in Portuguese. MURO is a festival created to break walls inside the city and society through street art.
MURO gathers national and international street artists to intervene in state welfare neighbourhoods. The purpose is not only to take art to public spaces but to bring artists, visitors, and residents together in areas that are usually more vulnerable to be outcasted by society.
MURO aims to put Lisbon on the Street Art map in an open event that invites everyone to take a new look at the city.
