Pedro d’Oliveira, born in Anadia in 1971, is a singular plastic artist.
Despite having a higher education in art and being represented in multiple private and institutional collections, both in Portugal and abroad, he has always kept himself away from the established art scene.
Mostly figurative, his works often refer to the imagery of children’s classic fairy tales (Pinocchio, Little Red Riding Hood, The Steadfast Tin Soldier), all expressed in a genuinely naïve way, through multiple plastic forms.

We think it is love, but it is always childhood that determines our actions.

– Oh Granny, what big eyes you’ve got!
– All the better to see you with, my dear!
– Oh Granny, what big ears you’ve got!
– All the better to hear you with, my dear!
– Oh Granny, what big teeth you’ve got!
– All the better to eat you with!
