portuguese arts


@sixpenceee this is calçada portuguesa (portuguese pavement roughly translated) and it is also laid by hand. I took these pics near the oceanarium in lisbon but they usually have different patterns/ art throughout the country.
I can’t add these to the post you made about other pavement laid by hand because i’m on mobile


Portuguese artist Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso (November 14, 1887 - October 25, 1918) 

Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso arrived in Paris in 1906 on his 19th birthday and became a prominent artist influenced both by cubism and by futurism. He became friends with Brancusi, Archipenko, Diego Rivera, Apollinaire and especially Modigliani, with whom he staged a joint exhibition in 1911. By then Souza Cardoso had already shown his work in the Salon des Independants. He would show there again in 1912 and 1914, as well as in the Salon d'Automne. After leaving the Parisian avant-garde to visit Portugal at the start of the First World War he was barred him from re-entering France due to Portugal’s neutrality. He virtually fell into obscurity and died from the the Spanish Flu epidemic at the age of thirty.
