GUSTAVO FERNANDES Born in Lisbon, 1964.

Lived for 13 years in Canada, in the periods of 1975/1979 and 1981/1989. Attended the Plastic and Graphic Arts programme at Dawson College and studied the method and techniques of Betty Edwards’s «Drawing from the Artist within» and «The Natural way to draw» by Nicolides, in Montreal. In the interim of his two-year stay in Portugal, he works under the guidance of the portrait artist Francisco de Oliveira. His first contacts with the artistic and cultural scenes took place in Montreal, where he had his first exhibitions (Galerie Triolet and La Bourse d’Art). He returns definitely to Portugal in 1989 setting up the bases of the Atelier of Artistic Development – Gallery of the Arches (Oeiras) which he will consolidate in 1992. In 1993 he is co-founder of the Grupo Artitude (with Luis Vieira-Baptista, Magnus de Monserrate and Victor Lages), which breaks up in 1996. His cultural and professional artistic activities in the market have become autonomous and have evolved since then, yet without losing the individual and close contacts that emerged with the most gratifying synergies of the Group. He is represented in the Linhares Art Directóry. 2005-2006 EXHIBITIONS He has had a total of more than 215 exhibitions, divided into: 40 individual shows, 30 group shows with and without the Group Artitude (21 integrated in activities of the Group Artitude between 1993/03) besides participating in more than 150 collective exhibitions from 1983 to 2005.
