Illustration created for Sala d'Estar gallery for the 2023 celebration of the Carnation Revolution in Portugal.
In 1974, Portugal was living in a state of hold, tied to an oppressive and anachronistic regime that had lasted for 48 years. But the dictatorship's hours were numbered. At 00:25 on April 25th, the radio gave voice to courage: 'Grândola, Vila Morena'. The revolution was under way, in a race against time that seemed endless. Then, at 17:45, the clock stopped. The deafening tick-tock was no longer heard. In the streets, there were finally songs of freedom.
