On the past Saturday, I hooked up with Pedro Matos and some friends over at the new Bristol Lisboa Gallery, to see the new space people were talking about. A nice cosy little gallery, but still big enough to fit all those heavy-weight artists straight out of Bristol. This first exhibition is here to show the works of six street artists, selected by the originality and wide variety found in Bristols fine street art. That said, the gallery has such names as Will Barras, Mr. Jago, Felix Braun, Mag1c, Lucas Price and Xenz (who had also been here before for the VSP event). Luckily I had the pleasure to talk to Nuno Tempero (one of the founders of the gallery) who quickly had the kindness to also put us in touch via skype with Alves Messias (the other founder who currently lives in Britstol) for a nice evening talk with everybody participating. Without a doubt, don’t miss this spot. Worth watching specially if you’ve never had the chance to see any live work from these artists. For more info,check the website.
