About: 

"And I dreamt of a woman suspended upside-down over a lava lake at the end of a rope. She had to go down, to collect magma."

I am a French artist of Polish origins born in 1982. I live and work in the middle of the woods, in the mountains of East of France. I studied Visual Arts at university but mainly followed the maverick’s path and I am self-taught in photography. 

I am mainly interested in digging into the mine of existentialism, chtonian mysteries, the uncanny and the unseen. My focus is on the exploration of the inner arena, emotional and psychological self-discovery. I use art as a way to uncover the true Self and integrate Shadow elements into the personality. The wild, the magic of synesthesias, symbols, rituals and intimacy drive me to create.

My creative vision has been nurtured by the encounter with the worlds of Ingmar Bergman, David Lynch, Andreï Tarkovski, or Sharunas Bartas.

Vibrant Portraits by Duarte Vitoria

Portuguese artist Duarte Vitoria creates oil paintings on canvas that release his unique style in a perfect and dramatic coloring.

A whirlwind of emotions and torments drags the viewer into his universe. Brushstrokes that seem to enlarge every detail, exaggerating the boundaries and definition of anatomical correctness and at the same time enhancing the expression of the body. A stumble of sensations between beautiful and ugly, good and bad that we enjoyed and hope you will as well.
