MARTINHO DIAS, (b. 1968) is a visual artist from Portugal.
My work moves, above all, in a social and political criticism inside a contemporary reality.
I select, change the context and manipulate images, essentially from the press and popular magazines seeking to create a new suggested reality – a new narrative, open to the viewer. These are my “models” to make pictorial compositions, which are the substrate of representations of figures and bodies, seen as an inevitability of daily life.
