“Et dès lors, je me suis baigné dans le Poème /De la Mer, infusion; d’astres.”

“And then I bathed in the Poem/ Of the Sea, constellated with stars,”

Arthur Rimbaud


Mário Vitória (b. 1983) has a solid academic background that involves a degree at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Porto, and two master's degrees, one in Drawing Practices and Theories, the other in Visual Arts. The artist's speech about his recent exhibition at the gallery of the Centro Cultural de Belém, with the title  “Corpus Hermeticum” of Lighté It is very elucidative of the poetic irreverence against the background of a personal and collective imagination that presides over the history of poetry. his work which in his words is not; an anthropological, religious, philosophical or scientific treatise, is rather a useful showcase of metaphors and allegories (…).”

In his current work with the title “You have been told, you are Gods”, the chaos of emotions is joined by the disturbing kaleidoscope of hybrid forms and figures between the human, the animal and the objects, all releasing the bonds of the real and the visible, a great journey in the ocean of the soul and senses, populated by fantastic creatures on unusual scales , or suspended in an imaginary space that uniquely evokes the atmosphere of “Bateau Ivre”, a famous poem by the French poet Artur Rimbaud.
