BIO

Fernando Marante (Matosinhos, Portugal, 1973), lives and works in Lisbon and is a visual artist whose experimental work explores the representation attributes of photography. 

Most of his images are generated with devices custom build, often using electrical engines to add movement to common objects. He's represented by Módulo Gallery in Lisbon and is a part of the Carte Blanche Collective

He concluded, in 2017, the Advanced Studies on Photography course at Ar.Co – Centro de Arte & Comunicação Visual, where he won two scholarships, sponsored by Leonor and António Parreira and by the Fundação Victor e Graça Carmona e Costa.

He’s being showing his work in collective and individual exhibitions like Bienal de Fotografia de Vila Franca de Xira and Bienal de Cerveira. He was a finalist in the Carpe Diem Millennium BCP young artists award in 2018. His work is published by several magazines.
