He lives and works in Barão de São João, in the municipality of Lagos. As a plastic artist, he works with recyclable materials in experimentation. The artist’s works that will be present in this exhibition assume a force consisting of explosive colors in shapes and rhythms aesthetically resolved by the experiences of spaces that influence his artistic decision. In the period of confinement, silence remained stable and pandemic isolation created so many doubts and so many certainties that inevitably influenced his creative process. In a frenetic and permanent production, Alonso reported the whole to his micro space in a short space challenge, to design an exhibition for the Centro Cultural de Lagos. He travels with an almost obsessive idea of finding objects and that is how his curricular universe results.

The collaboration between Ricardo Cruzes, artist, and Rui Vargas, architect, resulted in plastic forms structured by four hands, not easily detecting where the trace of one ends and the creative aspect of the other begins. However, they do not completely erase the marks of confrontation and the awareness of the difference in knowledge, experiences, methodologies and professional paths of each one, formulating an important metaphor of the meeting of cultures, as they prove the constructive fecundity of the tension between two (or more ) individual parts, which results in a third element, an “other”, with its own characteristics and innovative meanings, greater than the addition A + B. With the Algarve sea in the […]

Storm Factory gives its name to the artistic project that was born from the meeting between the musician Rui Maia, who we know from X-Wife or Mirror People, with Giulia Gallina, an Italian composer living in Portugal and who we know from projects like The Loafing Heroes.

The debut album came from the desire of the two musicians to develop a new aesthetic path born from the fusion of the neoclassical and minimalist pieces and compositions of Giulia Gallina, with the sound, environmental and electronic explorations of Rui Maia. The intention was to build something new, an aesthetic symbiosis that the two musicians had not yet explored. From this meeting, an album was born where there are no barriers of style. This was the key to the dialogue between different universes, which intertwine here in the search for a soundscape where a sensory piano, inspired by travel and mythologies, finds a wide range of environmental, industrial and […]
