José de Guimarães


Born in 1939 in Guimarães in Portugal. As one of the most prominent Portugese contemporary artists, Guimarães presents his artworks internationally in diverse forms ranging from painting, sculpture to public art. With profound interest in interaction of art in non-Western world, Guimarães not only takes such perspective into his own creations but also is known as an eager collector of primitive art from Africa, Latin America and China. The signposts that stand across Echigo-Tsumari region were made by Guimarães.
