Casca

Casca is a self-taught artist, born in Vila franca de Xira - Lisbon, to a family of artists with Angolan parentage.
He is one of the few Luso Angolan artists in the world of Angolan art. His paintings, drawings and sculptures are deeply influenced by the Angolan masks, symbols, artifacts and ancestral stories of the Chokwe people in the northeast of Angola, with whom he lived for four years.

Casca's work seeks to question the meaning of the stories of art and writing told by the West and to create the real stories. He explores a self-referential perspective of the black image, creating figurative abstractions in his own unique colorful style, combining drawing, painting, collages on canvas and restores the immense traditional and spiritual wealth that has always been hidden by the West.

His commitment to art is fundamental to what it represents beyond being a vector of beauty and emotion, a key to unlocking profound truths, quick thinking, an understanding of the world in its rich and complex diversity, a freedom of expression, a critical sense, a possibility of having a simple conversation. Fighting for this freedom and against any form of obscurantism and single-mindedness.
