Currently on – “escultura e desenho” by Jorge Vieira, from 24th of May to 27th of June.
It goes without saying that is a really big honour to announce that we are exhibiting a unique and fantastic exhibition of the sculptures and drawings of Jorge Vieira.
Born in 1922 in Lisbon, this artist began to stand out very soon. Little after Fine Arts University graduation won the Foreign Political Prisoner Price and never stopped rising again. Jorge Vieira wonderful bronze and terracotta pieces are exposed all over the globe in several public spaces. We have our own perfect São Mamede piece that the artist created for the gallery and we turned it into the gallery logo.
The impactful work of Jorge Vieira reunites mystical creatures, strange creatures full of imagination and reconstructed humans. A one of a kind world that jumps in perfect sync between drawings and sculpture. Among all these pieces you can contemplate the Varina, in a smaller scale then the one on Infante Santo Street; the figura bizarra, in an unbelievable bronze turned green, and the artist famous bulls in both sculpture and drawing.
Don’t miss the opportunity to visit the world of Jorge Vieira!
