CANTO XI

2017-06-17
Add Fuel x MGDRV
Amadora, Portugal, 2017

In the 16th century the Portuguese poet Luís Vaz de Camões wrote “The Lusiads”, a poem in ten cantos that came to be seen as the nation's epic.
In 2017, the Portuguese hip-hop band MGDRV composed the 11th canto and I was invited to translate the track into an artwork.
This was a multifaceted project involving one song, ten azulejos, and one mural.
