About the Artist
Ever since I can remember I have grown up with cubist images in my head! I have always found my attention driven by images, forms, objects, colours, graphics and most of all real life stories. Later on I found myself also influenced by art biographies. I always knew I had to transfer these feelings and emotions about images and stories I felt onto canvas. I try not to stress myself too much with the subject matter and paint from my DNA. Meaning, I paint the language that I understand coming from within my inner self. My art is created by my visual perceptions, both conscious and unconscious. This is a place where I have found my happiness as an Artist, flourishing freely.
I am of Portuguese origin, born in Africa. I lived and studied in Lisbon, Madrid, Milan and Los Angeles. I moved to London city to study about 22 years ago, I live in London permanently now in Chelsea. I graduated from Chelsea College of Art and Design in 1997 and I am currently completing my second degree at the Kensington and Chelsea Art College University. I started painting again four years ago after a long gap between my original art studies and work in other worldwide cities. My favourite artist is Francis Bacon, but I’m extremely sensitive to so many other great masters in art. It’s from them that I found myself as an Artist. In my artistic expression, I try to not stick to one technique because I never know how I’m going to bring to life the constant living cubism and abstract images that I have to deal with. I’m constantly in love with new techniques, that I have found in other artists, and progress to explore my creative limits with these. At this time in my life, I’m building my CV and my artist experiences on showing my artwork throughout Contemporary Exhibitions that have been crossing my schedule.
