João Teixeira

João Teixeira was born in 1982, in Coimbra, Portugal where he still lives. He has an academic background in health and started painting in 2013 as a self-taught artist.

Between the real and the abstract he is mostly inspired by the human figure, its movements and its interaction with the environment. His works usually begin with a photograph or a projected image that he mentally decomposes so as to give live to its own creation, its interpretation of the body, the gestures and ultimately the skin.
