In their second collaboration with São Mamede Gallery of Lisbon, Vale do Lobo Art Gallery presents new works from Portuguese sculptor Pedro Figueiredo. The exhibition runs through March 21st.
Figueiredo’s works are abstractions of human form, often gravity-defying in their design. Some works are table- or pedestal-top pieces, with others are larger than life.
Raised in the central Portugal city of Guarda, Figueiredo studied at the School of Ceramic Arts in Coimbra and later received a Master Degree in fine Arts from the School of Arts at the Univeristy of Coimbra. His works have been celebrated at exhibitions in Lisbon and Porto. Figueiredo is represented by the São Mamede Gallery.
Founded in 1968, the São Mamede Gallery was set up in an old building in an area of Lisbon known for its antique shops. From its humble beginnings the gallery has since become a reference point for Portuguese modernist painting, while it is also strongly connected with the surrealist movement.
