Manuel Neves e Sousa

Os Modernistas

Creative Process:

The Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Lisbon, or as it was previously known, the National Academy of Fine Arts is the oldest institution of art education in the country resulting in a long lineage of great artists, many of them internationally recognized.

Portuguese modernist paintings marked the national artistic panorama of the 20th century, giving rise to works ranging from cubism, expressionism, neorealism, and futurism, and I am proud to say that I share the same institution, with great names in this artistic movement.

In response to this challenge, I propose a tribute to 3 of these great modernist painters of Fine Arts who had such an influence on those who came after them:
Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso
Eduardo Viana
Julio Pomar

For this, three patterns were created alluding to the works of each of the artists to create the collection – Os Modernistas. A collection full of colour and history, just like the Faculty of Fine Arts itself.

About the author:

Manuel Neves e Sousa, is a 25-year old student from Oeiras, Portugal. Like all the other “Manueis” he prefers to just be called “Manel”.

Manel is a Designer, which essentially means that his work is based on an endless curiosity about everything that exists, whether its history, the way it's done, why it's done this way, and how it's used. And it’s all these curiosities that affect how it is possible to add value to something or solve the existing problems.

He's on his final year of a Masters degree in Equipment Design, in the Product Design specialty, which allows him to have a different way of seeing the world, and quoting him "... where all the objects that pass through our hands challenge us to create new ways to improve them, those things being a computer mouse, a heater or a motorhome".
