About Alvaro Raposo

 
 
  • Biography

    My work conveys what I want to do and what pleases me at a particular time. Simultaneous pieces of work are common, with different support features, a variable pictorial construction and distinct approaches. During the creation process I am not limited to maintaining the same pictorial representation or to the same shape or period.

    The depiction of the human figure in a contemporary way is present in all my work and it has almost become an obsession. These human figures cannot sometimes be distinguished in gender. They are mostly depicted in a solitary way and represented without any surrounding material element.

    Building shapes and limiting the space, my trace, careless of realism, is combined with the effects of contrast and color, which provides a necessary interaction and communication with each piece.

    Event: Re-cognition: art as visual intelligence

    Dates: July 1, 2016 - Aug. 31, 2016

    Venue: Art-Map, Ponte de Lima

    ART-MAP is happy to announce the call for its second big international art show in Ponte de Lima! On the behalf of an art event, the project proposes the artists the discovery of amazing places, quality exposition spaces and thankful audiences. The exhibition will take place during the months of July and August 2016 and occupy several locations: the authentic historical buildings, which have been converted into art galleries by the village, are now welcoming contemporary art. Charismatic spaces, such as a medieval prison, a tower, a castle and an old chapel have acquired new functions as exposition pavilions but the historical charms still gasp trough.
