About

António Rodrigues.

I studied Painting in Porto, Portugal. I live and work in Gent Belgium. In my artistic journey I found other disciplines that took me along paths of expression. In my work, we can establish visual links with realistic images, without leaving an abstraction.

Main theme of inspiration for me is the Nature in its different aspects and states…Ecological characters, social and political aspects are also an inspiration. For Antonio the work as a visual artist is the result of a consequent evolution dictated by the creative action and the intuitive character of external factors of daily analysis.

During my artistic journey. I found other disciplines on my way and thus expanded my possibilities of expression.
