By Paulo Albuquerque
The word "Lugar" refers to a "space occupied or that can be occupied by a body", while the word "Pertencer" refers, among other meanings, to "being part (of)".
Based on these words and the meaning they convey, the exhibition titled "Lugar" aims to transpose the artist's reflections and questions about the influence and significance that a particular space/place can attach to a person.
Starting from a collection of photographs and images, the Artist intends to convey through painting and drawing, some places and ideas that transport him to certain memories and/or display some kind of feeling of belonging, but also, a sensation of connection and appropriation of a space.
Paulo Albuquerque (Rio de Janeiro, 1988) is an artist, graduated from the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Lisbon.
His works are mostly paintings, illustrations and murals, where he presents dynamic compositions developed from different elements, colors and textures that interconnect and tell stories.
Inspired by human relationships, social habits, spaces and objects, his work is expressed through metaphors of his experiences and his daily life.
“I just try to expose my view of the world and society, some personal concerns and thoughts. My work starts from what I observe and what I absorb. From there, I try to create atmospheres and try to tell stories.”
