About my artwork
João Pombeiro was born in 1979, in Leiria, Portugal. Studied Visual Arts in ESAD, Caldas da Rainha, Portugal. Lives and works in Caldas da Rainha, Portugal.

His practice encompasses several different media, raging from painting to sculptural interventions and including video and web design. However, whatever the mean of expression used, one can note a constancy of problematics that arise from an analysis of the scopic regime of mass culture that characterizes contemporary society, carried out through the recycling of the tendencies and genres of post-war fine arts, among which visual poetry and pop figuration stand out.

In fact, the artist’s creative process rests on two strategies based on an awareness of the excess of images defining today’s everyday life: on the one hand, there is the appropriation of symbolic elements populating the western imaginary, whether these are films, advertising brands or others; on the other hand, there is the transformation of the materials appropriated to a logical of irony, which not only subverts its original principles but also converts them into objects with other meanings.
