Amadora, Portugal: new piece by Portuguese artist Alexandre Farto aka Vhils.

6 May Neighbourhood, Amadora. I painted the portraits of some of the inhabitants of this community that’s being torn down and people are being evicted and left out in the streets without any viable alternatives to live under a roof. Those who were left out of the 1993 PER resettlement scheme are seeing the house where they lived being pulled down with all of their belongings left in the street. All of this in the 21st century, in Portugal, European Union. My hope is that when these walls with these portraits are pulled down, people can reflect about the fact that it’s not only concrete and brick that are being destroyed. They are also destroying the lives of people who have lived and live in hardship and now see their most basic right being taken away: housing.
