Carlos was born in 1961 in Penalonga, district of Vila Real, Trás-os Montes. He graduated from the Faculty of Fine Arts in Lisbon where he got his masters degree in Theory of Art with a thesis about the Portuguese painter Nadir Afonso (1920-2013). He also studied etching in Lisbon. His paintings depict a wide range of interests and are a combination of mixed techniques on paper or canvas.
Carlos received some awards in Estoril (1995) ; Amadora (1998); and Moita (2007). His works were presented in many exhibitions both individual and collective.
Carlos is a colleague of mine. We both teach at Agrupamento de Escolas do Restelo. It was a pleasure for me to interview him for our school digital paper, @contece, in 2012. Quite recently, he has sent an article about Nadir Afonso, who has passed away.
For Christmas I got this etching I had admired in a previous exhition.
