I like street art but it is not everyone's cup of tea. It can be damaging to the view or environment. Generally if done well I think it has a place in today's world and makes a statement. It's art for the 21st century but the action of creating it dates back centuries. Lisbon has a lot of street art - most of it seems political. I wandered around and took many photos. Here's some samples.

This guy was on the last day of his vacation. He got permission ( from who I don't know )

Around every corner, in this area of town, another masterpiece.
I think this is my favourite.
Even the trash cans are targets.
Hope this isn't something rude...probably is.
That's all for Lisbon, onto the Algarve.
