Francisco Pinheiro (Lisbon, 1981) is a visual artist and he has been creating installations marked by a durational and performative approach. Working with notions of time, meaning and the contradictions nested in our collective narratives, Francisco created work in places such as the Old Mint in San Fran-cisco, Camões Municipal Library or his house in Campolide (Lisbon, PT). Francisco has been also exhibiting in different art spaces, notably A Montra (Lisbon), Carpe Diem Arte e Pesquisa (Lisbon, PT), Slow Track (Madrid, SP), Diego Rivera Gallery (San Francisco, CA), The Lab (San Francisco, CA), 1038 Project Space (San Francisco, CA), Contemporary Art Museum of Elvas (Elvas, PT), Espa-ço Campanhã (Porto, PT), or Módulo Gallery (Lisbon, PT). From November 2014 til March 2015, he was an artist-in-residence at Carpe Diem Arte e Pesquisa (Lisbon, PT). In 2014, he and Luísa Salvador created the West Coast art collective.
Francisco holds an MFA in New Genres from the San Francisco Art Institute (USA, 2014) as a Ful-bright/Carmona e Costa scholar and a BA in Painting from the University of Lisbon (PT, 2005). He lives and works in Lisbon.
