Cane Morto Spray and Roll for 60 Days In Lisbon

It’s very hard to see love as a force, as a power, but it is a reality.

For some it may be difficult to see art, much less unsanctioned public art, as a force for love and unmitigated passion. However it can be that as well.

We are not sure if those are the exact aims of Cane Morto over the course of 60 days (and nights) in Lisbon. But how else can you explain this force that drives and accompanies them? Working on something they call a secret project, this series of photos shows the sometimes grueling, sometimes langorous pace and profile of this always-experimenting troupe of Italian troubadors.

As ever it is Cane Morto’s misshapen figures, monstrous mugs, and obliquely Picassoesque references to longing and fear and God that roll themselves across surfaces in this Portuguese capital that full of museums and, increasingly, Street Artists inside as well as outside of them. The coarse work is rough-hewn and unwinding, unraveling, reforming; at times an energy hardly contained, perhaps because to do so would be a sacrilege – better to barely capture it here by camera than with a cage, this dead dog.
