I'm a Portuguese artist and I'm involved in a project that needs support to accomplish.
At issue is not only the opportunity to go to New York to do a show and have a year of coverage in a magazine of art, but also the possibility as a Portuguese artist, to go across borders and be able to show our art, as well as open avenues for new Portuguese artists and make the outside world knows our potential.
Now I tell you a story ... of the project!
Once upon a time... A lover of the arts, is seeking new opportunities to go beyond!
And so it begins ...At the beginning of the year when I was invited by a gallery on Broadway to do an exhibition and a one year cover in NY Arts Magazine, I couldn't believe it! Another excellent opportunity to show my work and who knows, win new invitations.
The exhibition will be held at the Broadway Gallery:
Want to explore the most of color and experimentalism in materials.
For that, I need you all!
Hope i manage to perform one more little big dream and for that, I'm counting on your help!
All support is welcome and much appreciated!

About the author
As long as I can remember to think and feel, I started seeing beauty in everyone and everything, and inside me, something spoke louder: the art to represent everything that existed around me and to share it with others.
And grew with me this passion…
Completed the course in Painting and Drawing in ar.co (Center for Art and Visual Communication) in 2005 and even before the finish, I received an invitation to teach in a painting Art school.
Participate in Fine Arts national and international contests since 2004, where I was selected in several, having won an honorable mention in the 4th BIENNIAL OF VISUAL ARTS SANTA CATARINA DA SERRA 2007
Realized to date, numerous solo and group exhibitions, national and international ones, and some of my works integrates private collections.
I have dedicated the last 10 years providing teaching in various fine arts schools, as well as courses of Painting and Drawing, to finally get to have my own space, “A ARTE TEM LUGAR” (in English meaning Art Has A Place, school of Fine Arts, where I give training and coordinate the activities of the artistic space and where I have been privileged to share the art with others, at the same time devoted every minute working to get power and go beyond valuing my artwork individually.
I'M always in love with art, always want more, looking for new horizons and new challenges and that's why, at this stage of my life, I try to go across borders in order to do more, through art that goes into my soul!
That's what I propose to do, asking for an opportunity to show my art, doing an exhibition in Broadway.
As Bertrand Russell said:
"There's an artist trapped in each of us. Let him loose to spread happiness everywhere."
