Statement

GOMES PEREIRA, José Alberto, portuguese painter (Riachos, Ribatejo, 1943) is a unique figure of portuguese painting. Educated in Lourenço Marques, now Maputo, Mozambique, he began his foray into the art world with his nanking drawing "Balada de Breu" (Ballad of Darkness), based on the works of José Afonso whose song "Grândola Vila Morena", was used years later as a signal and anthem, of the revolution of 1974 in Portugal (the singer brought the ballads to the "Tertúlias" - literary gatherings - attended by both during the evenings in Lourenço Marques - 1967. Another witness lost in time in which he denounced the colonial war, is the unusual mural made for the Military Police of Mozambique, called "The Accusation" (1964). Considered "Persona non Grata" (1970), by the apartheid government of the Republic of South Africa, he worked for the creatice departement for the Advertising Agency, INTER - Agência Intercontinental de Publicidade, in Mozambique (1970). Returns to Portugal after the "carnations" revolution in 1974, where he exhibits various developing themes and techniques in art-galleries, individually and collectively. Directs the field of graphic design for the Publisher Europa-América until 1986. In May 2008, he sets out for the Figueira da Foz Casino, exhibiting the 18 works called "A look at Fernando Pessoa", celebrating the passage of 120 years of the birth of the poet. These same works were exhibit 3 months later in São Paulo - Brasil.
