Ela é uma mulher incrível

That’s Portuguese for “She is an incredible woman.” While in Lisbon, I visited LX Factory to spray-paint the phrase alongside a quick stencil of my friend, Sara Meleika, onto bright yellow balloons, sticking them to poles and railings in an artsy area of the city. I watched how the public engaged with the balloons with kids who pummelled them before stopping to read and young women who posed for a picture or a selfie, playfully pointing towards themselves.
