Pedro Vaz

Born in Maputo, 1977.
Lives and works in Lisbon, Portugal.
He has a degree in Painting from the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Lisbon (2006).
His artistic work focuses on research into nature and landscape, mostly in painting, video and installation support. Personal contact with the place is essential in his practice and his projects very often include an expedition.
During the 2019/20 biennium, the pedestrian crossing on the Great Transpirenaica Route, GR11, carried out in Spain from the Cantabrian Sea (Cabo de Higuer) to the Mediterranean Sea (Cabo de Creus) was carried out in two stages of 23 days each. The crossing focused on the recognition of the Pyrenean natural landscape as the basis for the subsequent artistic production for the solo exhibition at the Centro de Arte Contemporáneo de Caja de Burgos – CAB, scheduled for October 8, 2021.
Later this year, 2021, two individual projects will be presented, one taking place at Galeria 111 in Lisbon, on the 19th of June, and the other Limen, on the 3rd of July in the Serra de Monsanto, in Lisbon.
Also noteworthy is the recent participation in group exhibitions, such as: VER/DE, In_Situ, Estufa Fria, Lisbon (2020); ALTAR, In Situ, Tibães Monastery Garden, Braga (2020); Continuous Present, Olive Art Centre, São João da Madeira (2020); How to Talk to Trees, Z42 Arte Gallery, Rio de Janeiro (2019); O Olhar Divergente, Archipelago, Center for Contemporary Arts, Azores (2019); Many times I made an appointment with myself at point zero, Casa Museu Júlio Pomar, Lisbon (2019).
