The opening of the exhibition “This is where I will always be – Works by Nuno Santiago”, organised by the Cultural Affairs Bureau, will be held on March 20, Friday, at 6.30pm, at Tap Seac Gallery, showcasing 28 painting works by the Portuguese artist.
For this exhibition, Nuno Santiago used a variety of different textures on large canvases, combining abstract visual elements to create mysterious spaces, allowing the audience to feel the atmosphere and the idea associations intrinsic to each work. The works on display were specially created for the exhibition.
Nuno Santiago was born in Lisbon, Portugal, in 1956, and attended painting courses at the Rio de Janeiro Federal University as well as Escola Superior de Belas Artes de Lisboa. From 1987 to 1993, he lived and worked in Macao, place that holds a special affection for the artist and where he organised, during his stay, several visual arts exhibitions. In 1994, he returned to Portugal and held exhibitions all over the world, showcasing unique works and revealing his constant creative and original approach.
In order to promote education in the field of the visual arts to the public and strengthen its knowledge about the artist and his works, in addition to providing guided tours at a set time schedule throughout the exhibition period, audio description tours will also be available for the visually impaired, thereby hoping to share these unique works with all citizens and allow them to enjoy the pleasures of visual arts. Details on the guided tours will be announced at a later date.
The exhibition “This is where I will always be – Works by Nuno Santiago” will be open from 21 March to 10 May, from 10am to 7pm, at the Tap Seac Gallery, located at No. 95, Avenida do Conselheiro Ferreira de Almeida. Admission is free.
