Artur Bordalo aka Bordalo II is an artist, born in Lisbon, who creates large installations from rubbish collected in the streets.
Born in Lisbon in 1987, Artur Bordalo signs as Bordalo II. Grandson of the painter Real Bordalo, he grew up watching his grandfather represent Lisbon. He attended the painting course at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Lisbon.M.I.
He uses rubbish to create large street installations, which depict animals or urban scenes. The garbage from abandoned factories, pieces in various types of plastic, and electronic waste are the materials he most likes to use in his compositions. Large pieces are welded to support, smaller pieces glued together, using a mixed technique.
With his works, he intends to draw attention to the problems of exaggerated consumerism and the waste resulting from it. They are the plastic translation of the phrase “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure”.
His art is three-dimensional, full of life, color, and movement.
If his first graffiti and installations were done clandestinely, today most of his works are carried out by invitation.
His works are scattered through the streets of Lisbon. Guaxinão is one of his most recent works (pictured above), included in the exhibition “Panic, Drama, Terror” that took place at the CCB, in Lisbon, in April.

I’ve tried to find the name of all sculptures here, but some I just couldn’t…. If someone can help me with this, please sent a message!
All of you, go ding the one of a kind work of an exceptional Portuguese plastic artist!
Thank you, Bordalo II!

Godzilla vs Kong
When I saw the trailer of this sci-fi/action film I thought it would be a merge of two beasts fighting together with not as much story behind… Or if so, a story that did not fit quite in either universe franchise…
I was wrong, this movie brings the beasts fiercely against each other, but the story behind also merges the backstories of both Godzilla and King Kong!
It’s a beast of a film, not only because of the two fierce monsters but also in terms of special effects and back story!
A film to discover!
