Barbara Debenham

Barbara DebenhamAside from being a versatile artist, Barbara Debenham has something of a reputation for being a witch. You don’t notice anything especially telling at first.
There was no broomstick leaning against the table in the café where we met. No black cat curling between our chair legs – but there was definitely something ‘different’ there. A refreshing desire for plain speaking, perhaps?          

“That’s one of the reasons I was called a witch”, she smiles.

Alota Ribeiro

Alota RibeiroA visiting artist remarked in passing this week: “You know, one of these days you will run out of artists to write about”…

Up until now, it is true, we have been writing about a group of people with an average age of well over 50 (and that is being diplomatic).

Of the 30 or so artists interviewed since re-launching the website this Spring, only three are under the age of 40…

What does this tell us about the future for art and culture in Portugal?

Aidan & Mariana Bremner

Aiden and Mariana, at home, with their artwork on the walls of the terraceFor years he’s been a summertime feature in Lagos drawing crowds to marvel at the speed and dexterity of his wackily insightful caricatures.

With his signature bright red Piaggio Ape 3-wheeler and infectious Scottish humour, Aidan Bremner can be found in the main square by the Old Town Hall every evening throughout the busy season, from “around seven o’clock” until past midnight.
