Duo Amazones, formed by artists Lina Castellanos and Nati Andreoli, have painted a 31m width mural within AgitÁgueda festival in Águeda (Oporto, Portugal). Duo Amazonas were the winners of Travel the Wall’s third edition, a Wallspot’s initiative that aims to encourage artists’ exchanges between different cities, promote the recognition of the artists registered in the platform, and generate international projects that give visibility to their talent.
In the second edition of Travel the Wall AgitÁgueda, the artistic duo has painted “Lamas”, a mural which intention is to “give visibility to the work’s procedure related to bio-construction”, point out the artists. Every year AgitÁgueda Festival impregnates the portuguesse city with colour and art. The festival, that is celebrated in the centre of the city, has a wide programme of urban art, including live art actions.
Accordingly, Duo Amazonas have performed a mural that is very rooted to the territory of Agueda. “Bio-construction is an ancestral tradition that has lots of advantages in the moment of being home, apart from not being polluting to the environment”, they explain. Through their realist style, the Madrid-based artists have framed the processes of matter transformation in bioconstruction with the goal to enhance its climatic, environmental and energetical qualities as well as its communal condition.
