Costah is one of the most prolific street artists from Porto, but he is also famous for his tattoo shop studio: Private Studio Porto Trindade – Costah Tattoo.
It is possible to see how the tattoo iconography influenced Costah’s street art portraits, especially visible on his stickers all around Porto. Costah’s street art portraits tend to be very colourful and shiny, full of watercolour style ornaments. Cats, young couples, boys, girls and birds are the main characters portrayed by Costah.
You can find Costah’s stickers pretty much everywhere in Portugal and even all around the world: Cambodia, Vietnam, Myanmar, Morocco and others. He is also an illustrator and a musician.
