to Apr 23 | ART EXHIBIT AND INAUGURATION | “This is Art – Or Therapy” by Valdemar Doria | Intendente | FREE
April 9, 2019 @ 19:00 - 23:00
An event every day that begins at 19:00, repeating until April 23, 2019
To São Tomé-born and Lisbon-based artist Valdemar Doria, art is therapy. As is food. And to some of Atlas‘ own staff, Valdemar himself is therapy.
Besides being one of the most interesting and prolific starving artists in town, he is a genuinely stand up guy (be he standing up or other). Anyone who’s met him can vouch for this. Forever on the move, with a sketchbook in hand, a kind (albeit not-always-kid-friendly) word to lift your spirits, a bright grin and an infectiously therapeutic laugh — and, most importantly, ever-evolving talent — this man is undoubtedly a national treasure.
And, for all these reasons, he deserves both local and international recognition.
Preferably before he dies.
Valdemar’s new show, “This is Art – or Therapy,” goes up this month at the LOGRADOURO DA BEMPOSTINHA restaurant. The opening inauguration on April 9th, starting at 19h, will have the legend himself in the flesh, with other local legend and musician Shaka (aka Joaquim de Brito) making some funky noise.
Come show some love (i.e., recognize).
Monday to Saturday – 12h to 23h.
Sunday – 17h to 23h.
(Exhibit up until April 23d).
