Found any googly eyes around Lisbon?
It is “Outro Olhar” (another look), an artistic installation made by the duo of British artists Luke Egan and Pete Hamilton (known as Filthy Luker and Pedro Estrellas). It is an inflatable work of art composed of recyclable fabrics — the idea is to draw attention to the trees that make up the Lisbon landscape in the year the city is the European Green Capital.
An installation in public space, in national premiere, by the duo of artists known as Filthy Luker & Pedro Estrellas, who create inflatable works of art for more than 20 years. Its fascinating and pioneering interventions capture the imagination of unsuspecting passers-by and have managed to create a unique niche in the international movement of urban art, through giant and provocative installations, such as the one that now arrives in Lisbon.
Avenida da Liberdade, Praça dos Restauradores and Rossio will also welcome these large pairs of eyes. The initiative is part of the Lisbon on the Street, EGEAC and local authority program.
