Diogo Pimentão (b. 1973, Lisbon, Portugal) lives and works in London. Studied at Ar.Co, Lisbon (1998); Sculpture Seminar, Gotland (1996); and Centro Internacional de Escultura, Pêro Pinheiro (1995). For ten years Pimentão has sought to open the horizon of the drawing and its conventions to other dimensions, other processes and other tools and his work refuses any hierarchy between drawing and sculpture, intent and improvisation.
