Street Art has long been a part of Lisbon`s culture. Until the 18th century most of the buildings in Lisbon were white coloured . After the strong earthquake of 1755, richer areas began to put some colours and tile into walls and pavements. Early graffiti was mainly an expression of artists in poor areas. After the democratic revolution in 1974, this self -expression increased and nowadays we have beautiful art that covers the streets of Lisbon.
