Nature will come to life in Lisbon. When we’re least expecting it, a tree will look at us with smiling eyes…seemingly wanting to get our attention!

INSTALLATION – First time in Portugal

A street installation being shown for the first time in Portugal, by a pair of artists known as Filthy Luke and Pedro Estrellas, who’ve been creating inflatable works of art for more than 20 years. Their fascinating and pioneering interventions capture the imagination of unsuspecting passers-by and they have managed to carve out a unique niche in the international urban art movement through their huge and innovative interventions, such as the iconic Tentacle Attack in which enormous inflatable tentacles come out of buildings

Filthy Luker and Pedro Estrellas launch themselves fearlessly into new ideas and concepts, which range from the sublime to the ridiculous, changing and questioning everyday urban spaces, inviting us to reflect on the impact that each of us has on our environment.

Over the years, this duo and their company Designs in Air have produced acclaimed works for a wide variety of shows and events around the world, such as the 2012 Paralympic Games, The Eden Project, Cirque du Soleil and Greenpeace, amongst others.
