Comment
ラランジョさんはポルト大学美術学部長でポルトガルの著名な画家でもあります。作品はシンプルですが人間の魂の原点を想起させるフォルムやリトグラフのマチエールを活かした画面は観る人に力強くこころの有り様を訴え掛けてきます。

Francisco Laranjo is head of the fine arts department at Universidade do Porto as well as a well-known painter in Portugal. Forms and materials that recollect the origin of human spirits are hidden in the apparent simplicity of his works.
