Artur Bordalo, born in Lisbon in 1987, is known as Bordalo II. He added the "segundo" out of respect for his grandfather, also a painter. His city is particularly affected by pollution. Its inhabitants use 460 plastic bags per year, the most in Europe.
With a background in fine arts and street art, the young artist has been putting his creative skills to work for the planet since 2013 and denouncing the poor recycling of plastic waste through his works.
