Guest Artist: Samina
5 to 9 Oct 2016 – Gil Eanes Secondary School, Lagos
March 19 to 22 – Escola Básica das Naus, Lagos


The intention of the stencil workshop is to give participants the foundation for creating an artwork using the stencil technique. In addition, everyone will have the opportunity to create and realize something by applying what they have been taught.
After a theoretical presentation on the technique, participants will carry out a stencil-making exercise based on the same process SAMINA uses in her work as an artist, fostering each one’s creativity and decision-making.
In short, participants will have the opportunity to learn more about the technique, make their own work, and apply it to a support.


JOÃO SAMINA (1989, Setúbal)

From an early age he had contact with the world of arts, especially with drawing and painting.
At the age of 14 he began to spread stickers in the streets and thus discreetly entered the world of Street Art.
For a few years he followed the growth of the movement and, as a self-taught artist, he grew as an artist.
It is during this time that he discovers the stencil, and in 2010 he feels able to produce larger and more consistent works.
Since then, Samina continues in the constant search for new stimuli to experiment with each work she makes, uniting her language with stencil techniques, and graphic elements that come from her references in the world of street art, graphic design, painting, and architecture.
