Francisco Mendes Moreira (1984) lives and works in Lisbon.  Initially, Moreira’s practice is a way of solving problems which build on an intuitive work process which can be triggered by contemporary culture endorsing both phycological and political aspects.

Working primarily in small scale with oil pastels and sticks on found cardboard food packages which are collaged, his images have an immediacy often shifting between representative elements to abstract patterns.

The different mediums and surfaces, number of themes and even the scale are all circumstantial, in the sense that it is his day-to-day living that determines the studio processes.

The act of analysis has little space in the specific creative process but looking at the artist’s oeuvre one can conclude that Moreiras practice is an ongoing commentary and staging of events related to the human condition.
