Paulo Canilhas

Portugal Born in: 1969

Advanced Course in Visual Arts, AR.CO – Center of Art and Visual Communication.

Attended several courses related to visual arts.

Worked one year in an Artistic Residence in the studio of the sculptor António Júlio and, later, one year as Curator's Assistant in a gallery of Lisbon.

His practice primarily focuses on painting and installations. Drawing and sculpture with aluminum – the preferred material for working in three dimensions, also feature in his body of work. Building objects, using hands, tools and primary materials are an intrinsic part of his works.

In addition to the absolutely decisive contribution made by AR.CO – Center for Art and Visual Communication, the “All-Around" exhibition (Loures, 2015) is a positive turning point in the way it has influenced and structured his creative process and the execution of the projects that followed.

I am concerned about the individual's relationship with society.

It is in this context that I exist.

With some beaten path, I allow myself to observe in several directions, for a recent past or for the future still absent, where is what I am looking for, what has not yet happened. When I take a look at the past, I identify the social and personal nuances that have occurred and their direct influence on my work, and then, with anxiety, look for what comes next. In this process, I distance myself, criticize and try to evolve. Looking for more. Ever.

I am not a painter, I am not a sculptor, much less a photographer or director, but I am a little bit of everyone, I don't have a favourite area and this allows me to navigate as free as we all should be. I will not achieve perfection in either of these areas, I am as sure of that as I am sure of knowing that this is not what I am looking for, but I will do a lot in both, I will challenge myself a lot, I will provoke a lot ... as I always try to do.

With my work, I try to establish a contact between my reality and that of those who dedicate a few minutes of observation, and I look, of course, for the vanishing point that gives me the perspective of a differentiating dialogue for my artistic production.

In this society, the one I observe, super productive, is it still possible to be differentiating? ... that's the fuel that moves me!
