Filipe Patricio

Date of birth : 1957

Country : Portugal

Painter. Patricio began painting in 1978 and his first exhibition was in 1980.

The title of the works presented here, Construção or Construction, clearly shows the major direction of his work. Using simple elements repeated throughout the various paintings, he creates a series of constructions within the space of the painting. His constructions are always different but at the same time similar to the picture of a strand of DNA, made up of basic elements of which the particular combination is unique to each individual.
