WELCOME TO ART GALLERY THE ONE

Collection: Capela, visual artist



Artist featured by Arca Gallery The One in a collection.


CAPELA, born in Lisbon in April 1973, initially pursued a career in Advertising and Public Relations but transitioned to television after just two years. Despite working with prominent figures in Portuguese television, CAPELA began painting in 2012 under the tutelage of Portuguese artist Gabriel Garcia. Describing his art as visceral and chaotic, he aligns with Jean Dubuffet's Art Brut movement and identifies as an Expressionist, embracing intentional "sloppy" art. Surprised by an invitation to his first solo exhibition in 2015 at ESPAÇO BRAHMI in Cascais, he initially painted for personal catharsis rather than public display. Only exhibiting when he felt his work met quality standards, he gained international recognition, represented by Madrid's Galeria de Arte Van Gogh at the Innsbruck Art Fair 2021 and featured in exhibitions in London and Madrid. His work was also showcased in publications such as "The Contemporary Art of Excellence | Vol. IV" and the second edition of Boomer Magazine. From September 16 to December 31, 2023, he participated in a group exhibition organized by the Municipality of Beja. Currently, from April 27 to May 27, 2024, he is part of a group exhibition themed "The Art of Resistance" at The One Palácio da Anunciada hotel, represented by Arca Gallery.
