André Trafic is a Portuguese urban artist. Born in Lisbon in 1989, he grew up and lived in Almada until about two years ago, when he moved to Dortmund, Germany, in search of new adventures. From an early age he followed in the footsteps of his father José António Silva (Ceramist), discovering years later the power of graffiti's artistic expression. Today his language emerges between murals, tiles and sculptures.

 

This contrast between the instantaneity of spray and the care and patience intrinsic to a ceramic piece, gives him a unique versatility and sense of time.

 

Each work is inspired by the dynamics of human existence, whether in interpersonal relationships or in our relationship with nature and the space around us. It is in this nest of constant self-exploration and experimentation that connections between industry and nature emerge, where dialogues of harmony blossom in an apparently chaotic world.

Synopsis:

For this intervention on the Vasco da Gama bridge's pillar, I was inspired by the concept of ‘Flow’ that marks urban culture. From the flow of a rapper rhyming, of a b-boy or b-girl dancing, to the flow of some graffiti lyrics, there are movements and rhythms that create resonances and provoke feelings that are bigger than us and that are so personal and unique that they become difficult to explain. So I tried to interpret these abstract movements and feelings to form an image that conveys a growing sense of togetherness, complicity and respect as a way to pay homage to all this vibrant, diverse and bold urban culture."
