Artur Moreira

Portugal, 1967

Born in Lisbon in 1967, Artur Moreira has been attending the atelier of the Psychiatric Hospital of Lisbon (CHPL), former Júlio de Matos, since 2003. In 2010, he has participated together with four other resident artists in the exhibition “Os Outros” (“The Others”) at Pavilhão 27 in Lisbon, the initiative organized by the atelier of the aforementioned hospital under the supervision of Sandro Resende, which was also marked by the collaboration with the artist Pedro Cabrita Reis. This exhibition project was an example of various initiatives promoted by the CHPL Fine Arts Atelier and had as a goal not only to exhibit participant’s work in such established spaces as the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, the Culturgest, the Galveias Palace, to name a few, but also to create a dialogue with the artists whose work was institutionalized in usual artistic circles.
