Behind the Scenes
For those born in the 1980s, tickets costing a cent, hours waiting at stops, traveling on a double-decker bus or on tram are striking.
These were our inspirations for the creation of the emblematic electric ticket for the exhibition "Leopard in a cage - 1968/2018" by Julião Sarmento, taking place at CIAJG José de Guimarães International Art Center from June 26 to October 07 2018.
This work of art was conceived by our designer Carlota Verde, who used a simple, ephemeral and small electric ticket that is transposed into tapestry.
“To create this rug I had to retreat a few years ago and recall experiences from my childhood. It was truly a challenge to transpose all the details, colors and realism of an object into a work of art. This project shows the importance of technique, experience and detail that dictate the perfection of a masterpiece”. – Carlota Verde
