Portugal, 1953


Lives and works in Porto. Attended the Fine Arts School of Porto from 1973 to 1974, the year in which he began exhibiting his work, presenting several pieces of performance art and developing a pictorial body of work that combines neo-romantic references with an ironic criticism of the condition of painting and its subjects in the Portuguese and international scene of the time.
Currently, the artist presents a set of coloured elements of polished aluminium whose volumes punctuate the space, in an itinerary that now reflects the viewer’s image, now highlights the viewer’s exteriority in relation to their alignment in space.
Pieces of considerable size feature a new element of research: acrylic sheets and their potential “transparencies”.
