I was honoured to be asked to participate in a new group exhibition at the WelcomeToArt Art Gallery in one of Lisbon’s hip new concept/gallery spaces, Embaixada, Praça do príncipe real 26,1° 1250-184.
The exhibition included three up and coming Portuguese photographers Teresa Marques dos Santos, Jorje and award winning José Esteves Martins providing me with an opportunity to expose my work and to interact with the Portuguese fine art photographic community.
Following the exhibition opening, I went on a location scout along the coast line and water ways of Portugal that will result a series of new works out of Portugal in 2019. This first work comes from Aveiro in northern Portugal often referred to as the Venice of Portugal. This work has opened up a new theme that I have entitled Buildings on Water,

A selection of shots from the Enter Art Foundation exhibition “42 Contemporary Artists”, a vital part of the Berlin Art Week. The Enter Art Foundation is a unique Berlin based not for profit visual art organisation founded with the express purpose of curating exhibitions designed to introduce the work of emerging artists to European audiences. As Gunter Sachs said “ even with technology, emerging artists are still the hardest to find and are almost invisible to the public”. Head Curator, Dr Suzy Royal’s role is to select between 30 to 40 artists from the hundreds of submissions she receives and to curate those works into a reflection of the Enter Art Foundation manifesto. The works of the selected artists are actively promoted by EAF in a series of exhibitions that so far in 2018 have included Stockholm Art Week and Bonn.
I am honoured to have been selected as one of the emerging artists and to have had my artwork featured in the marketing promotion for the exhibition and the Berlin Art Week 2018, a whole of city celebration.
Delighted to receive this letter from the Enter Art Foundation, Berlin, Germany.
I am happy to announce you have been chosen to participate in our ninth pop-up exhibition, ‘30 Contemporary Artists’ to be held Friday 14.09 - Sunday 30.09.2018 in Berlin. This fall Enter Art Foundation will present 30 German and international artists in the Gerichtshöfe building in Wedding, Berlin (Gerichtstraße 12-13, Wedding 13347). The early twentieth century factory building is now home to over 70 artist’s studios. The space we will be exhibiting in is large with high ceilings and lots of natural light, as well as track lighting. It is less 10 minutes walking distance from Ubahn and Sbahn lines which means easy access for an interesting mix of art lovers, collectors and gallerists. The last week is also the Berlin Art Week, bringing even more art interested people to Berlin. The exhibition will be open for public from Sat 15.09. - Sun 30.09, Thursdays to Sundays, 12-20:00.
