Pedro Matos Fortuna (Setúbal, 1962) PhD in Fine Arts, Painting, by Faculty of Fine Arts,

expression. Studies natural semantics, heuristic readings, and the value of analogy in
creative artistic procedures with a transcendentalist character, as well as discourses of
repetition. Reflection, conceptual and artistic elaboration around the perception and
identity of “place”, eventually using natural raw materials in ceramic bodies and coatings.
