Era Uma Vez… 249 (Once a Upon a Time… 249) – António Azevedo
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…” (“Once upon a time….”), which already has more than 200 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.
