National Museum of Natural History and Science - Blue Room - Lisbon - 10th January to 5th March 2017
Combining the passion for nature with drawing, the idea of the exhibition Wild Portugal arises. All illustrations were done in scratchboard black / white with china ink. The airbrush was also used.Over the past few years, and as I showed some of the illustrations I did, I noticed that there was still a great lack of knowledge of Portugal's fauna. I focused on the representation of some animals that we can observe in the wild. We are increasingly removed from nature and often the contact with the wild is only done through television. It is urgent to reverse this situation. I hope to contribute to the discovery / rediscovery of some of Portugal's fauna and arouse the curiosity in the visitors so that they will go by themselves to the discovery of Wild Portugal.
