Last October we had the pleasure to have the visit of the loving couple Enrique and Inma, both living and creating in Barcelona. Enrique sent us these beautiful photographs and words describing his unique experience in Praias. We find him very talented, a man of many arts following his passions as a geographer, cyclist, photographer, adventurer... and you can too travel with him through his words of wisdom and images in his blog Pasosypedales. Thank you so much and we hope to see you soon!!

After being born in the Sierra de Albarracín mountain range and going across Spain from east to west, the river Tagus crosses the Portuguese frontier and turns slightly southwest, where it completes its passageway – o Tejo – as the largest fluvial course in the Iberian Peninsula reaching thousands of kilometers.

The compatriots of Magalhães and Saramago have the immense honor to give a way out to this giant in a calm and complacent estuary, the Mar da Palha, a landmark where wetlands, salterns and cultivations express themselves like a fado, with that slow and melancholic sadness at the end of the tract. Then come the seventeen thousand meters of Vasco da Gama bridge, the charming Lisbon and its filigree design, the 25th of April hanging bridge and the Belém Tower, epilogue and extraordinary. If this country can overflow from some place, Portugal does it from here, without a doubt.

In its final course, in some place in Ribatejo region, oriented to the slope of Santarém, Francisca, Jens, Whiskas, Doctor – among others - live in the tranquility hideout, in a place where the sun wakes in the morning injecting energy, the walls tell stories of free masons, the wood squeaks like a brigantine at high sea and the spiral of stars darkens while expanding in all directions.

Create Portugal at LXFactory

A little movie made at late night of our art show in the Open Day07 of LxFactory, last Friday. Our special thank you for all the artists involved, visitors, LxFactory, friends and family for making this evening so much fun!! We hope this teaser opens your appetite to come and see the show, until the 4th of December.

Vegetarian wisdom

About ten years ago something happened inside of me that made me stop eating meat. I simply could not justify the killing of an animal and from the core of my being I just knew that was wrong. Ever since then I've always have defended in my surroundings my choice of not murdering an innocent animal, not for survival (as proven by us vegetarians) but for the mere pleasure of eating it. It can be tiring to go against the stream sometimes, but in the end I need to do what I believe is right. This poster series is for me and my fellow vegetarians swimming upstream, a reminder that we're among great men.

Anatomia do corpo humano

These are some of the illustrations scanned from another ancient book found. On the border between the weird and the amazing, the human and the alien… to remember and maybe inspire.

7 days to go

Next Friday the 11.11.11 we are inaugurating a group exhibition with Create Portugal, a network for artists living in and around Lisbon, Ribatejo and Central Portugal. The art show is going to be in LX factory, Lisbon on the second floor of the main building. We invite you all to join us for some fine art, wine and food at 7pm.

Love Francisca and Jens
