I'm a professional artist. I was born in S. Jorge, and now live and work in the small medieval town of Porto de Mos, located in the centre of Portugal. I began my education at the Antonio Arroio school for the decorative arts, and finished it attending an art course (1982/85) at the National Society of Fine Arts.

"In the figurative and abstract art of Francisco Santos everything is possible, even the ultimate impossible. He explores contrasts, opposites and unorthodox statements and somehow he brings them all to a total balance. The implementation of unexpected lines, forms and stains are a distinctive characteristic of his work, where the alternation of light and shadow intensifies the hidden beauty of everything.

This artist magnificently alters the definition of freedom as we know it, suggesting that his coloured lines, wide or narrow, vertical or horizontal are far beyond barriers. Canvas after canvas, thoughts progress away from the conventional reality, doubt and stress. And colour after colour the challenge to break free is the only option."

The paintings of colored lines, wid or narrow, appear as a turning point in my most recent work. Contrasts, calm harmony, balance and tonal beauty characterise these 'lines paintings'. The bright palette ranges from strong, full colours tones, to soft watercolour values and finds its peak with an almost "black and white" intensity, applied in parallel on the canvas.
