“Invisible Cities”by Miguel Januàrio in Lisbon, Portugal

Miguel Januario is a Portuguese artist, born in 1981, native of Porto. He graduated in Communication Design, soon involved in several projects within graffiti, design, illustration and production.
In Lisbon collaborates for the realization of a wonderful project in the Mercado do Chão do Loureiro: an entire multi-storey car park which combines its function with an absolutely unique background, unusual venue for an exhibition of graffiti.
The theme of its representation connects to a novel by Italo Calvino, Italian author, entitled “Invisible Cities”. Synthesis of this wonderful novel is the famous response that Marco Polo provides to the Emperor of the Tartars Kublai Khan about the city: “The cities believe they are the work of the mind or of fate, but neither are sufficient to take up their walls. About a city you don’t  enjoy the seven or seventy-seven wonders, but the answer it gives to your question. »
Miguel Januário portrays the typical buildings of the historic neighborhoods and highlights some aspects emblematic of the city of Lisbon, as the Aqueduto das Águas Livres.
