About the artist Afonso Costa
Born and currently working in my studio in Lisbon , Portugal , i have dedicated all my life and energy to the arts to desconstruct what my body and mind are able to deliver to the world . I did it in different formats passing through Product Design , Architecture , Ceramics and currentlty dedicating myself to Painting , Sculpture , Scenography for theater and fiction , Drawing and Instalation. All to explore my ways of expressing my feelings and thoughts while i am still able to do it , therefore , i feel a sense of urgency on creating because i feel it is my responsability to nature . My works will be my testimony that i hope will outlast me. So , after some hard working years i naturaly went towards abstraction and expressionism , a work very fisical and explosive but allways reaching a sence of flow and balance because a i realized that : I live therefore i create art.
