Vibrant, unusual and one of a kind. Let us present to you "Talude" (which means embankment), one of the largest works of street art in Europe. The idea was born in Helena Vaz da Silva Street, in the neighbourhood of Lumiar, Lisbon, from the hands of RAF.  Rui Alexandre Ferreira is the street artist who gave life to this incredible painting of 2600m2.

The artist, who works and lives in the Lisbon neighborhood, used more than 70 colour references from the Portuguese painting brand Cin, collaborating with RAF in this challenge. Through vibrant colours and airbrush techniques, the artist created three-dimensional visual effects that "create the illusion of volume and attribute dimension" and that "awaken curiosity", the statement said.

Adding value and "awakening" Lumiar, Lisbon's oldest civil parish, were two of the main objectives of the artist, who is part of the community and wanted to improve the space, which was already a reference in the Portuguese art scene and in European urban art itineraries.
