In Pedro’s works you can see the evolution in his dialogue with colours and geometry. Despite his preferences about the contemporary artist, like for instance Francis Bacon, his reminiscence comes from the neoplasticism of Mondrian and Ben Nickolson, and in some way Picasso.
Cubism has been part of his life but is only in the early part of his career, in his more recent researches and studies he finds himself combining both cubism and abstract expressionism in just one practice as he creates his work. He uses the technique of ‘dropping’, used by Pollock, but with the order and sense of Rothko.
Pedro is originally from Portugal and moved to the UK over 20 years ago to study his passion of art. He later graduated from Chelsea College of Art and Design in 1997 and further continued a second degree on Abstract Vision and Abstract Expressionism at Kensington and Chelsea Art College University.
Pedro is inspired by his favourite artist Francis Bacon but also finds himself drawn to so many other great masters in art. It’s from them that he finds himself creating his work. In his artistic abstract expressionism language, he tries to not stick with one technique because he does not stress about the subject matter or final outcome.
Pedro has collectors around the globe including Europe the Middle East and the USA.
