In a symbolic way, we wanted to present a problem of gender inequality, where women need to struggle with harmful stereotypes, sexism, prejudice. It is our tribute for those who fight for it and those who support the tireless and courageous efforts of human rights defenders.
Mots - street art duo from Portugal and Poland, created by painter and illustrator Diogo Ruas. Jagoda, photographer and project coordinator, has joined in 2017.
Their collaboration fused their individual approaches characterized by Diogo’s experience as a graffiti artist and Jagoda’s engagement in photography and social - art projects.
Mots is an author of dozens of murals, big-scale paintings around Portugal, Poland, Albania, Kosovo, Netherlands, Austria, Germany and Brazil. The biggest piece done by the artists was created in 2017 in Porto’s downtown, near the iconic Douro river, and it became part of its panoramic view. Half kilometer square wall merged with the landscape of the city.
Mots integrated work into various initiatives such as social projects, promotional, educational events, solo and group exhibitions, urban interventions, street art festivals, and publications in magazines and books.
