Via Odeith’s official page, you can read:
This piece was made in Setúbal on Avenida Luisa Todi and took nine days to complete .They asked me if the painting could have something to do with Setúbal .
I made a research and chose to do the boy who appears in a photograph taken by
A big photographer of Setúbal called AméricoWhile painting I wondered if the boy in the photo was still alive or have gone out of Setúbal
At that time .When one of the days , a man appeared and said :- That boy in the photo is my uncle , and still alive .I was happy and I met him today he has 91 years old .
When the photo was taken in 1933 he would have close to 10 years.

When her daughter took him near the wall , he said :

– The wound .

he noticed that the paint had the bandage on the leg of a wounded
he had in his ankle 80 years ago .

My thoughts about this Wall .

The photographer Américo probably never thought that someone
would paint a mural 20 meters of a photo taken by him 80 years ago .

The boy Vicente in the photo never imagined that one day he would see him self painted on a wall 20 meters high
when the Américo told him to look at the camera that day .

When I started painting I never thought that one day i could paint a mural in the center of this
beautiful city Setúbal .

conclusion :
The small actions you do today may be huge tomorrow !

Thanks Bruno Pereira
