Lisbon’s prestigious Galeria São Mamede, presents new works from Portuguese sculptor Agostinho Nogueira Lopes at the Vale do Lobo gallery in the Algarve. The figures, shaped in wood, explore dimensions of the human face, combined with striking geometric shapes, to create unique and thoughtful pieces. The exhibition runs through 30 April 2017.



Nogueira Lopes is best known for his wooden sculptures, but he started his artistic career as a self-taught oil painter, influenced by Picasso, Dali, Miró and Paul Klee.

Born and raised in central Portugal, Nogueira Lopes entered the Superior School of Fine Arts in Lisbon, where he expressed the influence of Professor Lagoa Henriques through his sensitive “way of seeing”.  Since 1977, he has participated in several collective and individual exhibitions in Portugal, and was awarded two Honorable Mentions of painting.  Nogueira Lopes works can be found in private collections in Portugal, Angola, Brazil and England.
