Martinho (b.1970, João Pedro Coutinho) lives in Ovar, where he teaches visual and technological education.
Restless by nature, he soon found comfort for his mental unquietness through his artistic expression. He makes art as therapy, creating in a compulsive and visceral way.
Both his paintings and his sculptural objects are marked by an apparent chaotic dissonance that makes perfect sense in the artist’s psychic universe.
He shows his works outside of Ovar for the first time, in the exhibition “Deviations and Misplaces” at Cruzes Canhoto.
