João Saramago


João Saramago, Lisbon, Portugal 1985
I studied Graphic Design and later on I left the university to work and do my art.
My practice is Drawing and my medium is a ballpoint pen.
I take Drawing as a meditation exercise. As a spiritual person, I do meditation every day.
I’m passionate about details and get inspiration from nature and music.
My work explores time, transformation and speaks about vulnerability as a strength.
I want to highlight the fragility and the error by carving lines onto the paper as if it was
sculpture and, by drawing entangled lines in organic compositions to pointing out the
fluidity of human emotions.
