Eduardo Fonseca e Silva &
Eduardo Fonseca e Silva (1993, Lisbon) and Francisca Valador (1993, Lisbon) studied Painting at the Faculdade de Belas Artes de Lisboa and have been working together since 2016, maintaining however, individual practices. Through very small paintings, sculptures and installations, they propose a balance between man and nature, mixing natural and arti cial motifs. Minimum elements that suggest a much larger scale, creating moments of pause and contemplation, where multiple meanings arise.
