Greene’s is currently privileged to be hosting an exhibition of paintings by Vítor Pomar. The exhibition opened on 15th September, 2017 and will run for the remainder of the academic year. Vítor Pomar has exhibited widely and is recognised as an influential artist of his generation with his works forming part of the permanent collection at the Gulbenkian Museum in Lisbon.
Vítor Pomar studied Painting at the Academies of Fine Arts in Porto (1966-67) and Lisbon (1967-69). He had his first solo exhibition of engravings in Lisbon (1970). That same year he decided to emigrate to the Netherlands, resuming his studies at the Art Academy of Rotterdam and at the Free Academy of The Hague, where he established his first studio.
The ensemble of Vitor Pomar’s pictorial oeuvre earned him the Painting Award of EDP (2002) and, more recently, the whole of his film and video work has been gathered in a retrospective organized by the Modern Art Centre (2011).
Today, Vítor Pomar works and lives in Assentiz, Rio Maior (Portugal).
