Beksinski (1929-2005)

“I wish to paint in such a manner as if I were photographing dreams” – Zdzislaw Beksinski Beksinski was a Polish painter, photographer and sculptor. He studied architecture in Kraków and had no formal training as an artist. He specializes in the field of magic realism and dystopian surrealism. He painted in a baroque and a gothic manner with his trademark precision. The first period of his work incorporates expressionistic colors with a strong style of utopian realism and a surreal architecture. The second period presents more abstract style. An exhibition in Warsaw in 1964 was his first major success – all the paintings were sold. Soon he became a leading figure in the contemporary Polish art. From the late […]

Corte no valor das bolsas de estudo

Valor dos apoios será equivalente ao recebido pelos alunos de licenciatura a partir do próximo ano lectivo. Os estudantes do ensino superior com deficiência que frequentam mestrado ou doutoramento vão ter cortes nas bolsas de estudo no próximo ano lectivo e passam a receber o mesmo valor das licenciaturas, denunciou hoje a Federação Académica do Porto. “Até ao ano passado [2018], independentemente do ciclo de estudos que frequentassem, os estudantes com incapacidade igual ou até 60% recebiam uma bolsa de estudo pelo menos equivalente ao valor da sua propina, independentemente do ciclo de estudos que estivessem a frequentar, ou seja, licenciatura, mestrado ou doutoramento”, mas com a nova lei vão receber o apenas 872 euros, o valor da propina máxima […]

Agustín Ibarrola Goikoetxea

Agustín Ibarrola Goikoetxea is a basque painter and sculptor. He began his relationship with painting in a self-taught way (at age 16 he made his first exhibition) and in 1948 the Council of Biscay granted him a scholarship, so he could move to Madrid to continue his studies in the workshop of Daniel Vázquez Díaz, until 1955. With him he made his first steps into Cubism. In 1950 he met another artist who had great influence on his production and his artistic mentality, the Basque sculptor Jorge Oteiza; with him he was introduced to the division and analysis of the space characteristic from constructivism. He also learned from Oteiza the mentality of joint artistic creation, where numerous artists and different […]

Friedensreich Hundertwasser

If you have already visited Vienna, I’m sure you have seen some colorful buildings in weird shapes.   All these art works were done by one of my favourite Austrian painters: Friedensreich Hundertwasser Regentag Dunkelbunt. His name tells us already a lot about him, it’s maybe even more exotic than his style of art. He was born as Friedrich Stowasser but changed it in 1949 and added some words. “Hundertwasser” is because of a Slavic word, “Regentag” means rainy day and “Dunkelbunt” a colorful dark. Hundertwasser was born on the 15 of December 1928 in Vienna and he spent the first period of his life there. During 1943, about 69 of his Jewish relations – on the side of his […]

A nossa galáxia não é plana

Todas as noites, um grupo de cientistas polacos monitoriza a luminosidade de milhares de milhões de estrelas da Via Láctea. Há umas especiais: chamam-se cefeidas, são as mais brilhantes e ajudam no cálculo de distâncias — ao estudar mais de 2400 delas, os cientistas perceberam que a nossa galáxia não é tão plana como se pensava. Afinal, a nossa galáxia não tem a forma de um disco plano, mas sim de um disco com as pontas “distorcidas” numa espécie de “S” deitado. É esta a conclusão de um estudo feito por um conjunto de cientistas polacos publicado nesta sexta-feira na revista científica Science e que corresponde ao mapa 3D da Via Láctea com mais detalhe e precisão feito até hoje.

Francis Bacon

Francis Bacon in my opinion is one of the greatest painters ever to put brush to canvas. His work would completely shock, scare and amaze those who would gaze upon it. His work would be etched upon the British consciousness after the Second World War. Coming out of the horrific and devastating war, Bacon’s paintings would reflect not only his consciousness but he would tap into the dark and unnerving subconscious of the people. He was an Englishman who was brought up in Ireland during in his formative years. His childhood was a very tough and harrowing one,  he suffered from severe asthma and that meant he was a recluse and very shy. Additionally, growing up with a strict protestant […]

Dos CTESP às licenciaturas

Quase dois terços dos alunos que entram nas formações de dois anos prosseguem estudos, mas estas tinham sido pensadas como “via rápida” de acesso ao mercado de trabalho. Os cursos técnicos superiores profissionais (Ctesp) estão a tornar-se numa via de acesso alternativa às licenciaturas. Estas formações de dois anos foram criadas para serem uma “via rápida” para colocar pessoas com formação superior no mercado de trabalho, mas quase dois terços dos diplomados está a continuar os seus estudos. Os dados recolhidos junto das instituições de ensino superior mostram que 65% das pessoas que concluíram um Ctesp em 2016/17 inscreveu-se numa licenciatura no ano seguinte. A realidade é diferente de instituição para instituição. Por exemplo, todos os diplomados da Escola Superior […]

Hiking in Madeira

One of my favorite’s activities here It has been four months since my experience in Madeira started. After this time I can’t consider myself as an expert of the island but I can explain one of my favorite’s activities here. That is always a good plan to do, not just in summer, but also at any time of the year go hiking in Madeira. Ribeiro Frio is a forest park where you can observe several Laurissilva forest species and the weather is fresh enough at any time of the year, perfect for a walking trail. The natural park is the crossroads of several levadas (paths). One of the easiest and most recommended trails is the Vereda dos Balcões that takes […]

Seasons in Madeira

I need to plan what I will visit again or experience new. My project in Madeira ended after 10 months. I arrived in Madeira in late September with the start of a beautiful autumn. The island presented itself with a lot of sun, long days and a water temperature I found highly surprising for October. But despite all this, it was not as tropical as I expected it to be and although Madeira’s nature is impressive I could not find the jungle I dreamt of. During Christmas and New Year’s Eve, the capital Funchal started to glow, gleam and glint in every street due to its overwhelming decoration which made the darkest day of the year was a very shiny […]

Travel around the coast

Something that a lot of people do in the summer in Madeira. The most popular way to travel is to rent a car and split the cost, making it quite cheap transportation. However it can be hard to drive in the mountains, and if you don’t have a great car and a lot of people you can get stuck on a hill. A bus is also an option, somehow they can easily drive on even the smallest and steepest roads, but it can be quite expensive to get a ticket. The last option is to ask for a lift on the road. It is actually pretty safe here so there is no problem with doing that, and it is free. […]
