Born in Évora, 1975. Caeiro studied at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Lisbon, where he deepened his training in drawing and painting. He began exhibiting individually in 1999, participating since 2001 of various exhibitions in Portugal, Spain, Germany, Belgium, Brazil, Netherlands, Switzerland, and the United States. Currently, Manuel Caeiro lives and works in Lisbon, Portugal.
Manuel Caeiro’s pictorial research is the product of a reflexion covering various artistic disciplines. Architecture, drawing and painting are confronted in the construction of space, placing the viewer not only as a mere assistant, but also as enjoyer and creator. The house and its ramifications occupy, therefore, a central space.
