The shop (which is part and distributes the well-known graffiti brand Montana) had the support of the city council (GAU) that found the shop & artist a nice building side very visible right in the heart of Lisbon. Aryz then started working on Friday night the 2nd of December and ended it the 6th afternoon (btw the mural is along Avenida da Liberdade near the Tivoli theater between Rua Santa Marta and Rua Rodrigues Sampaio).
Born in Palo Alto, California, but has resided in Barcelona since he was a child. In the last few years he has participated in a variety of events and urban art shows in many different countries. As a good new referent in Europe ARYZ’s exhibition @ MontanaLisboa showed for the first time his process sketches for most of is projects, photos of the evening can be seen here.
The best of all is that there’s a parallel individual show also at their Barcelona gallery running until January 21st in case you can’t make it to Lisbon, enjoy!
