ABOUT

The Neo-Expressionist Júlio Pomar was born in Lisbon in 1926. It is currently the oldest living artist in Portugal. He studied painting in both Lisbon and at the Porto Academy of Fine Arts, where he joined a group of fellow artists called the Independents. Pomar participated in the neo-realist movement from 1945-1957 and later became a neo-expressionist. Like James Ensor and Edvard Munch, but different from Jean-Michel Basquiat or Elizabeth Murray, Pomar is known for portraying recognizable objects, such as the human faces and body in a abstractart maner, rough and violently emotional way, using vivid and strong colors. 


The work we present in thos exhibition, is about Fado, about Carlos do Carmo, a Portuguese fado singer. Carlos is the first Fado singer  to add new elements to Fado, such as the double bass or orchestral arrangements, he also included lyrics by the most talented contemporary Portuguese writers and poets in his repertoire. He was the first Portuguese artist to won a Grammy Award. Fado is currently a world wide known symbol of Portugal, being represented for many years in foreign countries by the famous Fado singer Amália Rodrigues, and more recently by Dulce Pontes, Mariza, Carminho, Ana Moura and Katia Guerreiro. Since 19th Century that fado is a form of music characterized by mournful tunes and lyrics, often about the sea or the life of the poor, and infused with a sentiment of resignation, fatefulness and melancholia. This is loosely captured by the portuguese word Saudade, or "longing", symbolizing a feeling of loss.
