Pedro Gramaxo (Lisbon, 1989) is a Portuguese contemporary artist working internationally in constructive art, photography and film, analyzing and deepening our relation with space, time, memory and altered states of perception.
Pedro has been exhibiting in solo and group shows and public spaces since 2012 from Portugal, Italy, Holland and Bosnia and Herzegovina to Brazil, China, Russia, Argentina, United States and Iceland.
His work has been published in physical and digital magazines and art platforms all over the world.
Graduated in architecture from Lusíada University in Lisbon (2010), Masters in Arts (2012), where his academic education crossedbred between Art and Architecture, developing a technical research based practice within the contexts of “art spaces” and the representation of art “contexts”, enhancing the physical aspects of phenomenology.
Channeling his practice of exploring the dualism between bodily presence and experience with altered states of perception, Pedro Gramaxo creates "ultra narratives" with man-made constructive elements with new artistic contexts.
Pedro develops research based on the importance of on-site presence and its relation with ourselves, space, time and memory for higher levels of existence. This research deepens the human consciousness towards Art and "Hyperstates".
From an abstract point of view, Pedro´s projects define scale as a visual exercise, starting in 2016 with “HOME Series”, to 2018 “Landscape Series”, to 2021 “Dimension Series” to the present day, developing monument shaped installations in new and natural art contexts.
His distinguished public art projects are: “Bright Hour #1”, in Lisbon at MANPOWER Art Festival (2016), “Landscape#1” at IMINENTE Festival, Lisbon (2018), “Bright Hour #6” at Gaivotas Polo Cultural, Lisbon (2019), Dimension #5 in Vyksa, Russia (2021), Landscape #11 in Reykjavik, Iceland (2021), Graças I, II, II at ESPORO, Portugal (2022).
In 2018, he received an honorable mention from the Portuguese Order of Architects in the category of public intervention awards.
