Portraying Life Beyond Light and Shadow
‘My creativity undoubtedly stems from fragments of my unconscious; those hidden in the depths of my mind inaccessible otherwise. Thus art occurs in life perhaps to challenge perceptions; to enhance relationships; and to elevate human potential beyond beauty.’ – Inspired by both the impermanence of life and the unity of opposites, Paulo transmutes the interbeing into art by interplaying textures, forms and memoirs [ e.g., below ]. like goshka macuga he also believes the magic is the unknown; what you project into the artwork and how it captivates you.
Currently his practice has evolved to include new series such as ‘in time of covid-19’ [ e.g., above ]; ‘Life Beyond Light and Shadow’ [ silver gelatin prints e.g.,slideshow ] and ‘portrait of humanity’ [ e.g., below ]. All projects are aimed at encouraging sustainable social change. Paulo frequently donates to charities including – Art on a Postcard – which raises money for the Hepatitis C Trust. he studied Philosophy in Lisbon and Painting at the Slade School of Fine Arts in London where he resides.
