“As Cores da Viagem”, an exhibition of painting and drawing by António Carmo, invites us to a unique chromatic and poetic journey, resulting from his intense creative and pictorial work, revisiting places in the country and in the world, where Portuguese culture has passed. . It is itself a tribute to our people, customs, flavors, light, culture and our way of being in life and in the world. The matrix of his painting has everything to do with the Portuguese roots of his gaze and with this land bordered by the sea, with the designs stripped of artifice, with everyday figures of touching social density, with this solar country. We are faced with the configuration of a painting inspired by a memory of popular experiences, related to our cultural identity, moments that the movement of its colors and shapes transform into a prodigious plastic symphony. Exhibition until March 13, 2022.

Colm has been playing professionally from the age of 16, and Roddy from the age of 18. Music has taken this duo around the world, having played all over Europe, America and even Asia. Roddy tells us how the band got started, “Funny story, I met Colm when I was 17, after coming back from the Netherlands, while recording a video with a friend in Old town Albufeira, turns out Colm had a company that needed videographers, and I had a camera. So after a couple of beers and some talking I was hired and working for a company that worked with musicians from all over the world.” “After a while I became Colm’s “Roadie”, and eventually weaseled my way into playing guitar with him at one of […]
