Artur Bordalo, also known by his street name Bordalo II (pronounced “Bordalo Segundo”) is becoming one of our favs here at TAE. Personally I got hooked when I saw one of his latest, the trash kitty installation I posted on Instagram a few days ago.
We’ve featured Bordalo II twice before already, once when he did a series of paintings and graffiti on railroad tracks, and then we featured him again months later for his signature style of “mixed media on trash’s assemblage.”
Recently, he’s been doing a lot more collages on the streets of Lisbon and practically anywhere he sets his foot on. The Portuguese artist not only recycles but also sends an important message to all who see his work.
Via his Facebook, “Bordalo II presents us a figurative painting full of vivacity and movement, where he paints his own interpretation of urban landscapes and city entertainment.” They continue, “It is not only a way to recycle, but also a critique of the world we live in, where we often have nice things, which are based on junk without realizing it.”
Here are some of his latest works that are worth checking out!
