Revisiting an extraordinary heritage and remembering the pieces, drawings and paintings that are a part of our imagination: these are some of Sandeman's values.
It is also a commitment to a future that is closer to the artistic universe, with space to continue history through the artists who create images of our time.
We invited Francisco Vidal to express his own contemporary interpretation of one of the most symbolic and emblematic characters not only from Sandeman but also from Porto itself.
This time around, Francisco made the Sandeman Hostel the place where ideas were brought to life, sharing his work-in-progress with the visitors in real-time. It was way more than simply opening the doors of his “studio”. He gave people access to his thinking and creative process.
The Spirit of Porto
Not only a mysterious man behind its cloak that savours in the shadows but also a man that awakens the senses: the smell, the taste and even the touch.
