Corrupio, restaurant
Tile countertop and tile panel
Lisbon, 2022

 A tribute to uncompromising sketching and doodling (which appear from the release that the wine brings?) quotations as Wine is good for the heart , In wine is truth and quick games like tic-tac-toe and others. Small trigger sentences to make you think about food and others We deserve a revolution, What about “bitoque”?, Also!

It is as if a series of illustrators, artists, architects and designers, some renowned and some not, Portuguese and foreign, in a cosmopolitan Lisbon, had come to snack and scratch the tablecloth at the long counter of the popular Corrupio restaurant. Who never?

All the drawings by the various artists were interpreted by sight and scketched directly onto the tiles: Paula Rego, Julio Pomar, Álvaro Siza, José Almada Negreiros, Daciano da Costa, Raphael Bordalo Pinheiro, Alexandre Farto aka VHILS, Rapeppa Benju Tempo, Manuel Batista, António Pedro Louro, Rita João, Francisca Branco, Óscar Niemeyer, Paul Klee, Pablo Picasso, Bruno Munari, Lina Bo Bardi, Pablo Picasso, Jean Cocteau, Jean Bubuffet, Charlotte Ager, Victoria Antolini, Gianluca Cannizzo, Marina Grechanek


On the wall an ode to chorizo in Portugal: Health*, Sociology, Economy, Ecology, Gastronomy, Raw, cooked, fried or baked (For when a treaty?) Local, regional, national. Treasure & tradition. Innovation & invention? True or pretended. Visual (non) consensual snack. Blend Fatty, lean meats and paprika. By color, for the richness of texture, for the common and familiar to honor

Let’s have chorizo in the corrupio 🙂

*Chorizo health and toast!
