The painting exhibition «Plantarum», by Daniel Cardeira, will be on display, until September 25, in the exhibition gallery of the Algarve regional directorate of the Portuguese Institute of Sport and Youth (IPDJ), in Faro.
Daniel Cardeira was born in Beja, in 1992. He graduated in Painting at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Lisbon between 2012 and 2015 and is currently studying Art History, Heritage and Visual Culture at the University of Letters at the Faculty of Porto.
His field of work crosses drawing, photography, installation and performance.
The exhibition “Plantarum” consists of a series of graphic tests, carried out between 2018 and 2020 of native plants.
“The drawings in blood pencil, pastel and watercolor were motivated by a naturalistic desire (without being) to understand the world”, says the artist.
The exhibition, which opened to the public on Friday, 4, is open from Monday to Friday, until September 25, from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.
