Ruas de Monsaraz
Esposição de desenho e a pintura de Flávio Horta na ruas de Monsaraz
- Ruas de Monsaraz – Streets of Monsaraz
Flávio Horta was born in Évora and grew up in Figueira dos Cavaleiros, Ferreira do Alentejo. Lives in Beja and works in the city council. Self-taught, from an early age expressed interest in expressing himself through drawing and painting and was evolving with security and persistence, almost always in self-learning.
The rural environment in which he grew up has a significant influence on the themes of his work. Resorting to color, sometimes to monochrome, is through a contemporary realism that in recent years has been expressed artistically, representing the people of their region, among other subjects. The human figure is almost always present, directly or indirectly on paper or painted canvas.
