Disguised in the streets of Lisbon as just another old relic lies the latest work from Faile, the Brooklyn based street art collective. The newly constructed Faile Temple transforms modern typography, stencils and print into mosaics, carvings, and ruin in one of the largest modern art projects ever to take place in Portugal. Bringing together young and old (some rather cautiously), the piece is a worthy comment on religion as a social artifact, and a reflection of the times.
