João Trindade was born in Porto, Portugal in 1975. His first studies were in Design and Communication by the Escola Superior de Artes e Design in 1999. He found his true passion was painting using mixed media. "I often feel that what I paint can very well continue out of the restrictions of a canvas. I allow the process to be taken in two steps: the gathering of materials through collage and then painting on top of this collage with acrylic. This mixed media has therefore texture, different layers of wood and paper in order to create bi and tri dimensional areas adding to it some dynamism. Paint sometimes lives loosely from the imposed geometry, through rigid strokes I allow it to run, liquid, organic, free, randomly building up a meaning to the final work. My colour range tends to change but I always choose warmer colours that can be potential energy conveyors."
He's been living in London since 2007 where he's been exhibiting and working together with other artists and performers.
