Writing on other people’s walls: Fernando Pessoa edition
I’ve said before that I have a fascination with graffiti. Not all of it – I understand little of tags and assorted scribbles, but good wall art fascinates me. Seen in Espinho (Portugal), on a recent visit home.
From a bygone era, I give you Fernando Pessoa, potentially the best Portuguese poet of the 20th century, later on the unfortunate and involuntary idol of generation after generation of crypto-fascists.
That shot was taken in Porto. But he’s been seen prowling around the walls of Espinho as well.
Cool guy. Shame about the ‘tache.
