The spontaneous and dynamic brushstrokes with vibrant colors overlap the form, reducing the formality that characterizes the geometric elements. The exploration of color is one of the main features of his work, as it reveals feelings and creates different spaces in a single composition. The influence of the traditional Portuguese tile is noted, through the repetition of the quadrilaterals and the use of colors such as blue and white. In addition to painting and ceramics,Manuel Cargaleirohe also explored drawing, sculpture, tapestry and engraving.

2.Vicente Faria
the compositionsabstracts, unite the two artists that transport us to different realities, conceived through textures and expressive brushstrokes of intense colors, referring to lived situations, emotions and actions loaded with feeling and strength of freedom.Vicente Fariacreates through descriptions and representations, about the emotions acquired by experiences. A study of the moment, and the now, which in the work places space and composition at the center of reflection. It challenges chance, the unsettling feeling that leads to a continuous exploration of inherent risks, with varied possibilities of expression using a constant mixture of languages. A multiple representation of actions that give voice to the unconscious.

3.Reinhard Sommer
The similarities between the two artists come from the textures, brushstrokes and color inserted in the language.abstract. This post-war movement embraced power and formal aesthetics rather than literal representation.
“My job - textile printer, my calling - to enter the world of shapes, colors and structures and to leave it as a master. As a visionary, I try to combine art – philosophy – genius and madness. I taught at the University for Artistic and Industrial Design in Linz. Worked at the side of Prof. Ernst Fuchs and Wolfgang Hutter on the implementation of their art on fabric. I also developed printing and design for international eyewear manufacturers such as Dior, Paloma Picasso, Viennaline, Dunhill and many more. This was followed by solo exhibitions, “Wave of Life” openings, artist in residence and action art projects. I work with Icon Gold Pigment, which was specially developed for my technique. My large-format works deal intensively with coloring, ie the composition of shades of color that arise from the fine squeegee technique. The series of images are expressive, strong works that, thanks to their abstractness, bring art perfectly into the room.” —Reinhard Sommer

4. Piet Mondrian
Piet Mondrian became known for the creation of a new artistic style, which was not based on typical techniques, but on his philosophical interpretation of questioning the very limits of art by breaking with the conventional forms of painting. His compositions with primary colors, projected asymmetrically, and orthogonal black lines, thus demonstrating the aesthetic beauty and limit of painting itself. Before, from his famous paintings full of squares with primary colors, Piet Mondrian created piecesabstracts that resemble the works of the masterManuel Cargaleiro

5.Sonia Delaunay
Subtle and beautiful patches of color are brought together to create harmonious compositions, both inSonia Delaunayas in the works ofManuel Cargaleiro. Sonia Delaunaywas a French artist and designer who was known for using bold, colorful geometric patterns. “For me, there is no gap between my painting and my so-called 'decorative' work. I have never found the 'minor arts' artistically frustrating; on the contrary, it was an extension of my art.” It was in Paris that she met and later married the art dealer Wilhelm Uhde, who served as a means toDelaunaybecome a French citizen. During these early years in Paris, his paintings underwent a formal change influenced by the vivid colors of Fauvism. It was Uhde who introduced her to her future husband Roberto Delaunay. She divorced and married Roberto Delaunay. The new couple pioneered the fusion of Cubism and Neo-Impressionism, later considered Orphism by the poet Guillaume Apollinaire. The artist has used this new aesthetic approach to produce paintings, fabrics and drawings throughout her career. In 1964,Delaunaybecame the first living female artist to have a retrospective at the Louvre Museum. He died on December 5, 1979 in Paris, France, aged 94. Today, the artist's works are in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh and the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, among others.
