Conquest the Dream by FPF in Covilha 2018-05-06

Conquest the Dream by FPF in Covilha

The Portuguese Football Federation started a new Street art Project in a partnership with 8 Portuguese cities and 8 Portuguese artists. The first one was in Covilhã and the choosen artist was Aka Corleone.

The Portuguese Football Federation is promoting a public art project, in partnership with several Municipal Councils and a collective of eight national artists. The project starts this week in Covilhã. Based on the “Conquista o Sonho” (Conquest the Dream) movement, recently launched by FPF, it aims to inspire and motivate the Portuguese to pursue what makes them happy and the National Team to conquer the next World Cup.

In this project, the body that oversees the national football hopes to involve local authorities from north to south of the country, and counts on the collaboration of the curator Lara Seixo Rodrigues, creator of the project Lata 65, Festival Wool, Estau or Muraliza Cascais.

The collective of artists selected by the FPF includes renowned names and talents emerging from the national urban art, with works elaborated from graffiti to stencil, going through all genres, aesthetics and techniques usually referred to as post-graffiti with contemporary influences of figurative illustration.

The pieces and murals to be developed under this project will be unique and unprecedented representations of the “Conquest the Dream” movement, without any profit and with the sole purpose of serving and inspiring the Portuguese, working in a more winning, ambitious and capable collective mentality.

 

The first artistic intervention, written by AkaCorleone, is already happening in the heart of Covilhã, in a building located on the busy Rua Marquês de Ávila e Bolama. The artist promises a piece to illustrate the conquering spirit of Portugal throughout history, renewed by the Team of Quinas, as well as the athletes who represent it
