Mural in Setubal

May 14, 2021
Ele Zissou, a muralist from Spain painted a huge mural in Estrada da Graça in Fontainhas. See photos from the process.

Elena Gonzales or just ele.zissou painted murals all over the Spain, mostly in Madrid and Barcelona. This Mural in Setubal was her first international project.

Together with Sende and local filmmaker Pedro Estêvão Semedo, this huge wall was planned and executed within just a couple of weeks, with the support of the local Municipality, to mark the “Encontro pela Paz”, an event that will take/took place in the city during the summer of 2021.

Check it out. Huge thanks to everyone who helped (please see all the names at the end). 

Photographs were taken by Raquel Moreira.



Days of planning and sketching. Colours, brushes, local oysters, beers, music and fun.
