The latest public art mural in Lisbon is a project that designer Sílvia Matias is bringing together with the Ghost Creative Productions collective. It is the representation of a single word, “resilience,” which marks a year of the pandemic and, in particular, the first state of emergency, which was established on March 18th.

The mural is located on Avenida General Roçados in the Sapadores area, Graça. “The Resilience Project is meant to be a reflection of the harsh reality that has been imposed on us. The word resilience has never been heard so often, never asked for so much resilience, it has never been so important to keep an eye on this word, “said the initiative’s official presentation.

“A term that emerges in response to social, economic, political and psychological saturation across the country and in the world. And that in this way becomes part of the public art available in the city of Lisbon and encourages the public to think about it, while at the same time intending to stimulate that reflection through the artistic proposal, ”adds the statement.
