Earlier this week, several portuguese artists changed their profile picture to the same iconic figure (picture above) on Facebook and here’s the reason why. The Underdogs project presents its first public action at the Vera Cortês Art Agency, in Lisbon, Portugal, with the participation of the artists ±, Kusca, Mar, Obey, Ram, Smart Bastard, Adres, Sphiza, Tosco and Vhils.
In collaboration with London studio “Pictures On Walls”, a selection of artist editions by some of the most renowned names of the international urban art scene will also be on display, including: Mode2, Steve Powers, Parra, Sam3 and Blu.
The occasion will also mark the launching of the Underdogs online base, at www.under-dogs.net. The website will serve as interface between the public and the platform, conveying communications regarding its several projects, connections to the various agents and the sale of limited-edition screen prints; editions by artists connected with the project; books, both published by Underdogs or in partnership with other agents (readily available is the recent “Alexandre Farto / Vhils – Selected Works 2005-2010”, that focuses on the artist’s last five years of work); a selection of editions by artists connected with the street/guerrilla scene of Bogota, Colombia.
