Artist Name

João Almeida

Born: 1980

Hometown: Porto

Based in: Matosinhos

My artistic name is Xueka and I'm an artist from Porto, Portugal. I currently live in Matosinhos. Born in 1980, I am both a sculptor and a painter.
In my artistic practice, I find inspiration by connecting with the universe. It's through this connection that I bring my creations to life. I believe that by infusing energy into my pieces, I am able to truly express myself and evoke emotions in those who view my artwork.
As an artist, I am constantly exploring new techniques and pushing the boundaries of my creativity. Through sculpture and painting, I strive to capture the essence of the world around me and convey it in a unique and meaningful way.
I am truly passionate about what I do, and I am excited to share my art with you. I hope that my work resonates with you and that you can feel the energy and emotion that I pour into each piece.
