Paulo Themudo - A Simple Man Who Cannot Live Without Art

I’m a Portuguese painter.

Since the age of 8 years old that i live with the draws, the mix of the colors and the enthusiasm for the arts.

A very impulsive child that use to run looking for a paper to draw and paint.

Along the years I just put in action what I really feel that was my way, so, I have learned with some masters and colleges.

For me life without my art just don’t make sense.
