TERESA GONÇALVES LOBOPortuguese b. 1968

Teresa Gonçalves Lobo was born in Funchal, Madeira, in 1968, and has made a consistent career as an artist, exhibiting regularly in galleries and museums not only in Portugal, but also in France, Russia, Austria and Spain. She is currently represented by the Salgadeiras Gallery, in Lisbon, the city where she lives and works. She has a second atelier in her natal city, Funchal, in addition to her studio in Lisbon.

Having studied drawing, painting, engraving and photography in Ar.Co Centro de Comunicação Visual and Cenjor, respectively, Gonçalves Lobo has since adopted a very particular and original method of drawing, in a personal and emotional style of vivid gestural lines, calligraphic shapes and delicate brush strokes that are emotional and fluid. Her work is based on intuition and improvisation, depicting abstractl landscapes that are ambiguous and subtly feminine. Teresa Gonçalves Lobo has developed her techniques, transposing her bidimensional drawings into sculpture and even furniture design, an experience which led her to exhibit her “i Chair Long” in the Grand Palais, in Paris for the show “Revelations”, part of the Paris Design Week 2013.

Gonçalves Lobo is represented in numerous public and private national and international collections.
