Julião Sarmento

Selected works


Julião Sarmento was born in 1948 in Lisbon, Portugal, and died in 2021. The artist explored the terrain of desire and representation in an approach combining painting, video and sound and visual installations. He exploited a huge variety of combinations to create a series of works with recurring motifs: an archetypal woman, modernist architectural images, plant-like lines, references to literature and the cinema. A large part of his work addressed issues of fragmentation, the gap between real and fictional, and latent eroticism.
