Is it a Ferret? No, it's a Genet! [CCC's Street Art Contest #32]

in StreetArtlast month

Good afternoon, Street Art Lovers!

Here is my entry for the CCC's Street Art Contest #32, hosted by @digi-me.

This beautiful piece of art was created by the Portuguese artist Bordalo II, which is the artistic name of Artur Bordalo, a creative youngster with an unique style. He incorporates pieces found in junkyards in his Graffiti works, achieving incredible images like this one.

This is a creature named Genet, which I have to confess, I had never heard about before... it is a small carnivore that is very common in Africa. One of the subspecies can also be found in Portugal, Spain and France, even though there are not many of them around.

This piece is right outside the Shopping Mall in the city of Bragança, in the Northeast of Portugal, near the Spanish border. It's a very picturesque town and a very relaxing spot for everyone willing to take a break from the busy city lifestyle. 😉

I hope you like this shot.

Never seen this creature before, hehehe, looks like a raccoon to me :P

It was my first time, too... and I've never seen one of them alive. According to the Internet, it's one of these guys:


Stunning and unique work 👍

Thanks a lot, I'm glad you liked this one! 😎

Genet is a powerful little animal, not seen often. Nice mural on the wall of this wildlife @trincowski

It's an interesting critter. I had never heard about it before. Have you ever saw one live?

I have not seen one in the wild, genet is nocturnal, down here we have the large-spotted and small-spotted genet, perhaps one day I will be fortunate enough to see them.

Always very original the works done by Bordalo 👍

Thanks for sharing this pic on The StreetArt Community.
