A day with João Cutileiro.
We had a chance to spend few hours with João Cutileiro in Evora
Here is a short biography of this great sculptor:
Born: 1935, in Lisbon, Portugal
João Cutileiro de Almeida is a noted Portuguese sculptor. He received scholarships from Portuguese, French, and American foundations, and later became a professor of sculpture at the Escola Superior de Belas Artes do Porto in Porto, Portugal.
He works in a variety of sculptural media as well as tapestry, set design, and painting. In the 1970s he focussed on bronze; during the 1980s he expanded his range of materials to stone and iron, and by the 1990s he had come to focus on monumental public works, which can be found in Portugal, elsewhere in Europe, the USA, and Brazil. Other works are exhibited in such museums as the Museu Nacional de Arte Contemporânea in Lisbon and the British Museum in London.
