Portuguese artist João Mouro specialises in reconstructing redundant furniture he finds left out on the streets of Lisbon and turning it into wonderful works of art. He believes that collecting discarded wooden furniture is a more cost effective way to experiment with materials. What he creates is completely dependent on what sort of materials he finds, and does not follow any specific design process.

louvor e simplificação de Álvaro de Campos, MÁRIO CESARINY DE VASCONCELOS (1923-2006). Is among the most important Portuguese surrealist poets, having published several major works. Was also a painter, but his work became more centered on poetry in the 1950s. He founded the Lisbon Surrealist Movement with other Portuguese artists. He adopted an attitude of constant experimenting in his work. This principle is the main characteristic of his work and has been present throughout his career.
