In the town of Porto, in its smallest street, Perspéntico stands the last murals of Liqen representing a big blue cat.

A few months ago, in the city of Porto, more than 60 artists took part in the Verão é no Porto, an initiative of PortoLazer to give summer patrons the opportunity to live in a different way the characteristic Portuguese city.

Among these, there is also the street artist Liqen who, to pay homage to the city, has moved away from his usual complex style while managing to maintain the typical features of his art.
Perspéntico, this is the name that he wanted to give his big blue cat, a color chosen to take up the iconic Azulejo of ceramics, is located inside the smallest street in Porto, which, for reasons of size, forces the viewer to get closer to discovering his work in its entirety.

Perspéntico, who on his shoulders supports the weight of a city, wants to demonstrate how nature is much stronger than everything we build, stronger than the technology we use and, through the symbol of the skeleton of a tourist, also expresses the artist’s opinion on globalization.
