ABOUT THE ARTIST
Acacio Viegas is a Portuguese artist who lives and works in Viana do Castelo, Portugal. Since he was a young boy, he has developed an interest in art and design. Growing up he decided to study Product- and Graphic Design. Today, Acacio works as a designer, however, in 2014 he decided to explore new forms of expression, which he explains with a personal need for spiritual manifestation.
Acacio’s work decontextualizes the concept of functionality and objectivity, fundamental characteristics of the design process, to create a contemporary plastic discourse based on synthesis, geometry and industrialization. The artist explores the digital medium as a line of study to embody his synthetic vision of reality by combining craft and industrial techniques. His work synthesizes the contemporary spirit of balance and harmony between manual production and technology.
Artig Gallery presents a series of sculptures and mixed media works created by Acacio Viegas. All works are signed by the artist and are delivered with a certificate of authenticity directly from his studio.

IN MY OWN WORDS
"I use art as a form of expression, communication and reflection with my surrounding world.
I seek to crystallize, through a universal and synthetic language, a complex reality or experience, based on a vision or idea, using symbols and simplified geometric forms, as is the whole creation of nature.
I think that when we contemplate a composition, form and color, a thought or a change of meaning is manifested in us and it brings us to a new state of consciousness, whether conscious or unconscious.
In this way, my works are the fruit of an inner need for spiritual manifestation and expansion of consciousness, opening new paths of semantic exploration of the form to communicate with the soul.
The mixture of knowledge clearly influences my choice of techniques and supports. The use of contemporary digital and industrial techniques reflects modern society and its socioeconomic and technological characteristics.
I propose art to contemplate, feel and meditate."
