Born in Penafiel, the activity of Eurico Gonçalves, who was self-taught, was focused on the painting and drawing and the production of theoretical texts
and art criticism. He published various studies and articles about the problems of the expression of the child, Dadaism and Zen. He had a scholarship
with the F.C.G. in Paris during the years 1966 and 1967, having worked with the painter Jean Degottex. Since 1972 he has been a member of the Technical
Board of the S.N.B.A.
th Eurico was involved in proposals of a surrealist tendency which the art of the second half of the 20 century was able to convey, ascertaining the gestures
in signs connotated with archetypes and conclusions of the unconsciousness.
