“I paint as I breathe, I love as I live”
Born in 1934, in Santarém (Portugal), Silva Palmeira is a painter, ceramist and sculptor and exhibits since 1957. He’s represented in several national and foreign collections. In 1997 he received, in Paris, the “Mérite et Dévouement Français” silver medal and in 1998 the “Arts – Sciences – Lettres” bronze medal.
In 2006 two exhibitions were organised by Portuguese Centre for Fine Art Screen Printing and Brazil House to celebrate his 50-year career.
His work, mainly landscape painting, contains a visible illustrative part, with figures built in geometrical plans, flat colours, well defined shapes, and light/shadow contrasts switching abruptly.
In Portugal, he’s represented in Civilian Government Offices in Évora and Santarém, Tourism Comission in Nazaré, Angra Heroismo Museum, Sesimbra Gallery in Ritz Hotel (Lisbon), Portimão Gallery (Algarve), Martins Correia Sculptor City Hall Museum (Golegã), Armindo Teixeira Lopes City Hall Museum (Mirandela), Gan Insurance (Lisbon), Madeira Country Press (Funchal), Caixa Geral Depósitos Modern Art Museum (Lisbon), Portuguese Centre for Fine Art Screen Printing (Lisbon), Montepio Geral Bank Collection.
