The individual exhibition ERA UMA VEZ… OUTRA VEZ! (ONCE UPON A TIME… AGAIN!) by António Azevedo, will open on May 12, from 6 pm. to 8.30 pm. The exhibition will remain open until July 3 and the admission is free.

ERA UMA VEZ… (ONCE UPON A TIME…) is a never-ending story that António Azevedo tells in hundreds of acts and that comes to life again in our gallery after the success of the exhibition in 2021.

In an infinite visual narrative, António Azevedo puts together a series of independent episodes that portray everyday scenes that he reproduces meticulously and in detail.

Each of these scenarios is like a small act in a play, in which the miniature characters inhabit fantasized places created from banal but unexpected objects that are part of our routine.

With scenographic and scale exercises, the artist creates in each of his works a unique atmosphere that allows the viewer to become a true playwright, able to idealize his own story from the window that opens before his eyes…

ONCE UPON A TIME… AGAIN! is an invitation to return to this fascinating universe and plunge into a new, never-ending story.


Antonio Azevedo is recognized by using modeling figures in small quadrangular frames. Pieces that tell stories and are part of the project “Era uma vez…” which already has more than 300 acts.

Despite his academic skills in fashion design, it is in window dressing and merchandising that his professional activity develops. Having even collaborated directly with brands such as Burberry, Levi ‘s, Swarovski, Armani, among others.
The artistic creation projects have emerged spontaneously and gained more and more space in his life. Testing new media and techniques, he explores the handmade character, always looking for strong symbolic elements and loaded with stories.

His pieces have found representation in several places around the world, including the “Destination Portugal” collection of 2010, in MoMA stores, in New York and Tokyo.
