About Boa Mistura
Boa Mistura were born in Madrid in the early 2000s. This group of friends, who met while painting graffiti on the walls of their neighborhood, has become a leading artist collective in the street art scene worldwide.

Boa Mistura is Portuguese for “good mixture,” and refers to the diversity of style and perspectives inherent to each member of the group. They understand their work as a tool to transform the streets and to strengthen bonds among people.
