    The main purpose of the research this artist has done over the last 20 years by Eugénio Santos, which he has converted into technical drawings of buses, is to keep the collective memory of this means of transport and its importance in the development of a society alive.

    The content on exhibit is a small sample of the beginnings of what could be called the “Virtual Museum of the Buses of Madeira”. The idea is to create a new space, an interactive website where people who are interested can learn about the history of this type of transport.

    It is known that as the vehicles aged over time they were taken out of service and dismantled. With rare exceptions, their only legacy is the hundreds of photos that document the presence of these buses in the archipelago. Today, thanks to new digital technology combined with patience and dedication, a black and white photo can be transformed into a dazzling colour version.

    Technique used: Vector drawing with Adobe Illustrator, exporting the result to Adobe Photoshop for completion.





    banner Funchal, the capital of the Madeira archipelago, was declared a city in the 1500s, and became an important point between the old and new worlds. The laid-back city owes much of its historical prominence to the white gold, the Madeiran sugar. Today Funchal is known for its appealing temperatures, wine and crafts. Top spots to visit include the open Worker's Market, Blandy's Wine Lodge and the Sacred Art Museum. Friendly locals, walkable streets and cheap taxis make the city easy to get around.
