yesyoucan.spray is a collective of women from different parts of the world who have organized and managed the Lisbon Street Art Tours, the Lisbon Artistic Journey Tour and irRIT’ARTE for several years. We have worked closely with all kinds of street artists not only through our research but also through our efforts to highlight the beauty and messages of what is written on the walls across Lisbon.
Our backgrounds include an artistic education, an anthropological background, a cultural-scientific approach, a graphic design vision, a do-it-yourself ethos…but above all, we all aim to combine our diverse viewpoints to create a new dynamic on the graffiti/street art scene through paintsessions and local projects to explore, express and experience.
We work to create a platform for anyone and everyone to learn to express herself or himself through the media of paint, stencil, paste-up, and anything in between, as well as to explore through dialogue artists’ reasoning for representing themselves in the cityscape.
As a social profit and intercultural initiative, yesyoucan.spray intends to establish creative interventions in the urban cityscape of Lisbon. We desire to interrupt and awaken the senses of people passing by a particular created spot.
