Back in the city for his upcoming solo show with Under-dogs, Ernest Zacharevich recently painted two new pieces on the streets of Lisbon. In his signature style, Lithuanian artist is mixing traditional painting with street art and graffiti, achieving striking results.
First piece depicts a sardine and a fishing hook, one of the Portugal’s most iconic foods and symbols of the country. Painted on a small yellow section of the wall in a typical neighborhood, the photo realistic fish is in great juxtaposition with it’s surrounding, including graffiti tags underneath. Second piece is showing one of Zach’s playful kid characters playing with a yellow buffing line. In Portugal buffing doesn’t include covering the works, just crossing them with a strike of yellow paint. With this piece the artist went along with that can and mouse game and painted a little boy curiously crossing the line.
