French street artist Zilda uses both paint and pasting techniques to create classical works that blend extraordinary well into the romantic backdrop of old Europe. The latest entries come from the city of Lisbon. Zilda:
" It is essential to know the social and architectural stratification of a city, to get familiar with its streets, its quarters, and to view that urban setting as a constraint that stimulates the staging of my ideas. 'Spotting the city' amounts to approaching it like an open-air museum where each wall constitutes a hypothetic painting, a backdrop already developing its own aesthetics and organization of colors and materials."
