If you're an artist, what kind of art do you make?
I am...
A visual artist born in Lisbon, Portugal, living and working in Toronto, Canada. I am a primarily self-taught artist.
About my artwork
I am interested in looking at the inner workings of the human body, challenging art history's tendency to privilege representations of the surface of the body. My paintings are presented in light boxes --a reference to x-ray light boxes and the hidden perspectives of the human body which they reveal. The subject matter itself consists of abstract depictions of human cells.
Artists I like
James Turrell, Bruce Nauman, Anish Kapoor, HC Berg,

poets: Walt Whitman, Wallace Stevens

philosophers: Pascal, Montaigne, Kierkegaard, Nietszche
What exhibitions are good at the moment?
Anything at Median Contemporary (www.mediancontemporary.com) an artist run gallery owned and operated my Kal Mansur and I.

Just spotted your work and like it very much, it has a fragile beauty and also a strange sense of mystery. I like the sense of depth you've achieved with your floating forms.
Nice stuff.

oi rui!
that's a pity... I'm leaving in the morning of the 26th!
but don't worry. we'll have other opportunities. I've been going to Toronto every year for the past 3 years. So maybe next year I'll be around again and then you can show me your favorite parts of the city - and your work, which I really like.

Muchas gracias por aceptar mi amistad.
Tus trabajos, una visión muy lírica que nos aproxima al origen de la vida. Todo ese mundo que palpita y que es dificil de visualizar.
