CARLOS CALVET

1928

Biography
Born in Lisbon, he graduated in Architecture from the E.S.B.A.P. and then devoted himself to painting and, at times, to the cinema. His painting has
“pop” resonances by dint of his taste for the contours defined and the common and consumption objects which he conveyed on the canvas. However, by
dint of the variations in scale, the “petrification” of natural elements, the chromatism, there are clear metaphysical traces in his works. This shall surely
not be unrelated to his contact with surrealist artists.
