Pedro Matos was born in Santarem, Portugal and now paints in Lisbon.
Matos is equally interested in representing the abandoned surfaces often found in the run down urban areas where his subjects live. While his work is influenced by the works of the old masters, the subjecst which once were religious figures are now ‘downtrodden, unnoticed, unappreciated and forgotten.
