Biography

 

João Motta Guedes, explores concepts of freedom, vulnerability, love, justice and violence. His artistic productions reflect on life as a metaphor for a journey where different paths emerge, allowing the discovery and sharing of experiences about the meaning of feeling and being human.

 

His artistic language appears in plastic media such as installation, sculpture, photography, drawing, written words and poetry, and has a predominantly projectual and experimentalist nature.

Based on a poetic discourse and narratives, it seeks to question the way forward through oniric expressions that elevate the observer to a utopian look at society and life, which result in a comprehensive record of symbolic and metaphorical images that enhance poetry as the awnwser to the formulated questions.

 

His projects stem from the personal and academic experience that led him to complete his Degree in Law in 2018, and in 2020, the Master’s at Universidade NOVA de Lisboa. In 2019, he decided to direct his academic research towards the intersection of the artistic discipline, finishing at 2023 his Masters in Painting at the Faculty of Fine Arts of Lisbon.

 

Since 2018, he has been a researcher at the Foundation for Science and Technology in the project “COSMOS – COSMOPOLITISM: justice, democracy and citizenship without borders”.
