Jorge Pinheiro

Her work is featured in the following collections: Museu do Chiado, Serralves Foundation, Museu de Arte Contemporânea do Funchal, EDP Foundation, Coleção António Cachola and also the Coleção Banco Privado. She received the Prémio União Latina prize in 2001.From the principles of assemblage, intervened appropriation and abstract construction, the artist creates objects that appeal to the careful reading of their own processes, surprise and intrinsic nature. Isolated or conceived for dialogues in the space, they have the presence and the tactile appeal of sculpture, but also the resourcefulness of drawing and the intriguing challenge of their latent symbolic reference.

His development as an artist has traversed one of the most eventful periods of art making at the second half of the twentieth century and in these first decades of our new century, which has involved a radical questioning of what constitutes a work of art, and  it's redefinition, as idea and as production. In the case of Jorge Pinheiro, production extends to the concept of craft and of making, while the term ideia encompasses the artist's intelligence ad deep reflection of what it is to create in the world.

Born in Coimbra in 1931, Jorge Pinheiro graduated from Fine Arts School of Porto in 1963.

Jorge Pinheiro is central to the artistical pantheon of Portuguese art.

He was a teacher from 1959 to 1998 in various schools and Universities such as Fine Arts School of Lisbon, Fine Arts School of Oporto and at Évora University.
