Xicogaivota by Ricardo Ramos – Portuguese artist and plastic beach colletor

Do you believe in Superheroes?

We do, and today we visited another one.


Ricardo Ramos, aka @xicogaivota likes to see himself as a Maestro that through the plastics found and collected from the beach, he develops unique pieces of art to express the frenetic consumption we live in nowadays.


What has started some years ago, as fun moment for his kids by creating Christmas gifts at our local beach of Praia das Maçãs (Sintra), has become a powerful tool/ brand to change our mind and to help different communities all over the world.


Thank you for what you have been doing 🙏🏻🌍🌊🌱
