artists, designers, writers, photographers and sneakerheads, we are all those
who breathe urban culture, who make it, who listen to it and who help it
started in 2009 with Montana Shop & Gallery, in Bairro Alto, the shop
specialized in urban culture. We introduced the city to emerging artists like
Akacorleone, Bordalo II or Maria Imaginário, but we wanted more.
In 2016 we
changed our address - to Cais do Sodré -, and the name, to Montana Lisboa.
Three years later we took on the identity we've always carried, Crack Kids, and
stopped being just a riverside oasis in the city center.
We are a
collective with multiple identities, willing to include everything and everyone
who wants to be part of it.
In this new phase we have a multi-brand
shop with the best products for graffiti. We've established our own clothing
brand with limited editions signed by artists linked to the movement, who are
also responsible for unique silkscreens. And we haven't forgotten the gallery
part, always with an emphasis on newcomers and with exhibitions renewed every
KARMA, from the streets to the gallery, from
the gallery to the streets.
Since 2009, the art that
we have been exhibiting in our gallery, initially in Bairro Alto and currently
in Cais do Sodré, comes from the streets.
And if we're from the
streets and it's from there that our artists come, 12 years later we have the
opportunity to give back to the streets the art and talent they gave us.
A kind of Karma, but
In order to eternalize
the moment, at each exhibition we have created exclusive silkscreens. Within
the scope of the Muro Festival, we are going to transform 12 murals into an
open-air gallery, where 24 chronologically identified serigraphs from our
collection by various Portuguese and foreign artists will be exhibited.
