Manuel Penteado
1985 Lisbon, Portugal

 Starting as a painter and a sculptor, soon came the compulsion to become a collector. 
A collector of objects, images, shapes, events, emptinesses, and things in-between. 
Things that when put together, somehow show a pattern amidst chaos.
Almost like a solution, as elegant as a mathematical formula, to the question of being.
