Born in Lisbon, Portugal, 1966. He works in Lisbon and Oporto.
Graduated in Arts, Paulo Mendes is a visual artist, curator of exhibitions and producer of cultural projects.
Founder and board member of the cultural association PLANO GEOMÉTRICO.
He has been exhibiting his artwork, both individually and collectively, since the early nineties, having curated several independent and institutional exhibitions in the last twenty years that promote the development of a new generation of Portuguese creators.
His work is characterised by the contamination between several fields – cinema, design, architecture, music, theatre, dance –, and by the diversity of media which each project determines – painting, drawing, photography, video, installation and performance. He also engages in work in the editorial and graphic design areas.
