Fallen City is about structures that break. An analogy to present days, my concept was to provoke a reflection on what's happening to societies nowadays. There's a storm coming which is breaking down lives, structures and a life history that will never be the same. Written pages of stories once told now float into the void, society's structures now fall, still there's light on the horizon and the water will once again wash everything. Painted with deep insight and purpose this work took quite sometime to come to an end. It was necessary for me to always be in the same state of contemplation each time I approached it with full action strokes.
Shipping & Returns
Based in: Lisbon
Born in Lisbon in 1967, this is the city where I have lived most of my life. I was born in a family of architects, art collectors and artists which allowed me to contact with the world of art at a very young age.
I also lived abroad for a few years and as a surfer I traveled a lot around the world, which allowed me to better understand the human being and the social and cultural differences.
I have developed my artistic expression between 1989 and 1994, when design and advertising (my profession) challenged me to develop my creativity in a different way.
By 2016 profound changes in my life, coupled with a quest for emotional and spiritual growth, have brought me back to artistic expression.
My work is dictated by my deeper spiritual state. When I look at my work, be it with anger, detachment, concern, joy or pain, I always do it with surrender. Self taught as an artist, for me subjects are insights that come from within, they reflect my culture, state of mind, soul and life experiences as well as my inner search.
