" I always seeks to represent problems, concepts and social values in my works in a warm and sometimes provocative way."



Filipe Conde, also known as Sapate, was born in Cabinda on September 22, 1982, and is a passionate visual artist with a deep-rooted love for the arts. His artistic journey began at a young age, influenced by his uncle, who was a sculptor. This early exposure ignited his passion for the visual arts and set him on a creative path.

Throughout his artistic career, Sapate has honed his skills and knowledge through various workshops and ateliers. Notably, he has been a dedicated disciple at Atelier Mawete, where he not only continues to learn but also serves as a secretary, contributing to the artistic community.

Sapate's commitment to his craft has resulted in several solo and group exhibitions, allowing him to share his creative vision with a broader audience. In addition to his exhibitions, he has been involved in diverse projects, including advertising work for the Coca-Cola brand during the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

As a member of UNAP, the National Union of Plastic Artists, Sapate is part of a community of artists dedicated to promoting and advancing the visual arts in his region and beyond. His journey as an artist is marked by his dedication, creativity, and a commitment to contributing to the world of visual arts.
