Lisbon: Graffiti Bombing with Mr. Phomer


After chatting with Orehla Negra, Mr. Phomer met us over at Carhartt, a streetwear shop that’s housing his latest F.E.A.R. exhibit. A self-professed “connoisseur of all things cool,” Mr. Phomer offered to take me around Alfama and collaborate on one of the many things he does so well… graffiti.


Alfama’s got an old village charm with its whitewashed houses, narrow streets, and churches with stunning views over the city. Mr. Phomer lead me to a spot via a high alleyway where there are remains of former baths and springs with various random graffiti spread across the vast space.


We selected a washed out pink wall for the "bombing" which meant it was done fast and dirty, and then we got the hell out of there (note: you can totally tell which parts I painted).
