I've studied International Relations and Diplomacy, but i'm actually interested in economy and social studies. There is something in art that somehow explains a lot that's happening in the world right now, and i seek to uncover it. Feel free to contact me at

António Areal was a Portuguese painter. He was a pivotal figure in the transition from surrealism orthodox to gesturalism and then to a new kind of figuration in critical link to the art Pop and réalisme Nouveau.
