Street art is for everyone – meet Lisbon’s graffiti grannies

In most cities, Cortesão would earn the title of the oldest graffiti artist in town, but not in Lisbon. Here, she is part of Lata65, an organisation that runs workshops for over-65s who are interested in making street art, at which the oldest participant today is 90-year-old Isaura Santos Costa. There are also several octogenarians among the group of eight women and three men, who have been dubbed the “graffiti grannies”, the youngest of whom is 59.

Wow. That was awesome encouraging seniors to engage in art; especially the street art, the one that’s popular among youngsters.
