Lisbon, 1970, holds a Master’s Degree in Multimedia Art (Audiovisuals) from the Faculdade de Belas Artes da Universidade de Lisboa, and graduated in Multimedia Art (Photography) from the same institution.
Guest teacher at Escola Superior de Arte e Design – Caldas da Rainha (2015/2016 and 2016/2017) on the subjects of photography, audiovisual and multimedia project and digital drawing.
In 2015 participated in the raum: online art residence, and in 2017, took part in the ResArt Marvão artistic residency.
Since 2018, he has been carrying out a multimedia and audiovisual programme for primary and secondary school students as part of a project promoted by Belém civil parish council.
His artistic practice is concerned with aspects related to the human condition, specifically through a reflection on human beings’ need/desire for transcendence. In this respect, the object carries out a predominant role as a bearer of life and mnemonic evidence. He uses photography and video as his core media, which combined with drawing are his media of choice, while the end product of his works comes to acquire an installation-like quality.
His work is represented in several private collections in Portugal, France and England, as well as institutions like the Museu do Combatente, Galeria Artur Bual, Associação 25 de Abril, Fundação Portuguesa das Comunicações and Coleção Figueiredo Ribeiro – Quartel da Arte Contemporânea de Abrantes.
