Diogo Pimentão

Diogo Pimentão (b. 1973, Lisbon) lives and works in London. He 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. Pimentão was awarded fellowships at Aide individuelle à la création – DRAC Ile-de-France, Paris in 2010 and Fundação Gulbenkian, Lisbon in 2003. Recent solo shows include Galerie Murias Centeno, Lisbon (2014); Oblique Gravity, Yvon Lambert, Paris (2013); Screening Matter, Schleicher Lange, Berlin (2013); Longeur sans largeur / Point sans partie, Galerie Schleicher+Lange, Paris (2011).
