Diogo Evangelista

Diogo Evangelista (Portugal, 1984) graduated in Fine Arts from the Lisbon University of Fine Arts in 2008.

Diogo Evangelista (1984, Portugal) lives and works in Lisbon. With a multidisciplinary practice, his work revolves around themes of desire and transformation, exploring the animist potential that the human imagination has to appropriate concepts, images and environments. His work, in its multiple forms – sculpture, drawing, painting, and video – explores the interstitial zones between art, science, realism, fiction, technology and nature. Evangelista graduated in Fine Arts from the Lisbon University School of Fine Arts in 2008. In 2019/20 he collaborated with the post-graduation in New Media of the Catholic University of Oporto. Between 2012 and 2015 he was a co-founder of the artist-run space Parkour-Lisbon.
