PORTUGAL: Madeira Island – Streetart Funchal – Colorful Doors, Whale Murals and Garbage Art

Today we have some street art for you from the eastern part of the Atlantic. Funchal is the capital of the Portuguese island of Madeira, which is about 710 km off the Moroccan coast at equator height. In the cozy city you can find smaller urban works of art and larger murals in many places, but a very special place is the Rua de Santa Maria with the adjacent streets. Artists have brought the once run-down and half-ruined district back to life with a creative and colorful project: the “Projecto artE pORtas abErtas” which means “Open Door Project”.
