Ella & Pitr
Quando as crianças dormem… / When children sleep…
Location: 180 Creative Camp / Castelo de Abrantes
The work in Abrantes Castle by Ella & Pitr Castle was done during the 180 Creative Camp, an event organised by TV Channel 180 in 2014.
Ella & Pitr are two artists who form the couple 'paper painters'. They draw sleeping giants, large birds with heavy wings, eaters of children, cairns, chairs or charred tree trunks.
Sometimes they ask passersby to take pictures of themselves in front of large frames painted on the wall and ask them to send the photos. So far the web page has received more than 4,000 photographs, all available on site.
They describe themselves as 'a couple of French artists who draw on the floor to make the clouds speak'.
