Cristina Vilarinho is a designer, painter and dreamer from the north of Portugal, she loves to find inspiration in Portuguese literature. Beside her work of traditional tile painting for restoration, she developes drawing and tiles painting in a contemporary way. Here we find her real inspiration and imaginary, her reflection about our world that she combines fragments of poetry and a deep connection to her culture.

The “azulejo” is one of the icons of Portuguese culture. The word of arabic origin “al-zuleich” means polished stone. The Azulejos (painted tiles), original from the orient, are present in Portugal for five centuries, covering and giving colour in a very singular way to palaces and churches, stations, public and private houses. Specially in contemporary architecture, hand painted azulejos are again used, Cristina and Alberto from Projecto A2 collaborated with architects in those new projects.
