(Francisco José Ribeiro Lopes dos Santos)

I am an artist from Luanda/Angola, at the moment, living in Lisbon/Portugal. I have been involved with art since very young, I began writing to the 14 Years old and painting to the 16 (Watercolours and Chinese Ink). In that time, I have published some short stories and poems in several magazines and papers. In the secondary School, I was a Founder and Publisher of the Magazine "The Bantalas" entirely dedicated to the Arts (Art Painting, Photograph, Prose and Poetry) and I have participated in a contest of Art Painting whose objective was the creation of a poster commemorative of the anniversary of the M.P.L.A. obtaining the 1º place.

From 1982 to 1999 I was involved in several musical and theatrical projects as a technician, musician, producer and director, writing several adaptations and two original pieces.

I love experiencing new techniques and ideas, my work is strongly influenced by the African art and by the work of Salvador Dali.

Curriculum vitae:

Courses of "Scientific Drawing" and "Creative Thought in the Post-Modernism" (Ex. Soviet Union).

Course of “Improvement in Painting Techniques for Oil Portraits”, promoted by the Art Painter Master, Almaia (Portugal).

Degree on “Aesthetics and Theories of the Contemporary Art" and Master on "Art Painting and Plastic intervention”, from SNBA (National Society of Fine Arts - Portugal).
