Closed on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays. Vítor Pisco began to draw and paint as a child by the fireplace. Then, in elementary school, in the breaks I stayed in the classroom to draw, while his colleagues went to play ball. He learns the first oil painting techniques as an adult, first to observe in books and then with the impressionist painter Camol D’Évora. He starts with acrylic painting and mixed media. Vítor Pisco will drink to several influentials but prefers a free style without rules. His favorite painters are Picasso, Salvador Dali, Van Gogh, Marc Chagall and Kandinsky. His favorite styles are: expressionism, neo expressionism, abstractionism and figurative expressionism.

The techniques used are acrylic, oil and mixed media. My inspirations come from the memories of Alentejo of yesteryear and some from the present. On the screens you can see harvesters, shepherds, mondadeira, waterers, […]

A few years ago, the celebrated sage Sarastronauta decided to move to a space station, hoping to have the peace and quiet necessary for his incessant search for wisdom. The trick he found to attract men into his world of virtue and wisdom was to create a character called Papageno. Like the original Papageno, it is also captivating due to its fun way of being and talking. His disguise as Papageno is so perfect that not even Pamina, Sarastronaut’s own daughter, recognizes him. This double personality also allows him to obtain precious information from his daughter Pamina regarding his mother, the Queen of the Night. When Tamino appears on the scene, Papageno is precisely with Pamina, and his fascination with the girl is immediate. Trying to know where to find her, Papageno shows her the way to the Orbital Station where she lives with her father, the great sage Sarastronauta. That is, himself.
