ÉVORA, PORTUGAL, EU, 03/31/2021 – The city of Évora in Portugal will be the next destination for Santiago Ribeiro’s surrealist paintings, where it marks its first presence in this Alentejo metropolis at the end of this April.
The initiative comes from the company MatosCar, an automotive group present in the Portuguese cities of Guarda, Fundão, Castelo Branco, Portalegre, Évora and Beja. Official representatives of 24 brands.
This time the show will be permanent because the business group has decided to purchase the works that are around a dozen and where they were on display in the new facilities in Évora and can be seen by many thousands of people.
Below the painting “Metropolis 5000” will be one of the paintings present. This work is currently in the United States where it was exhibited in New York at the Artifact Gallery.

About the video
Persuasive and mysterious voice of the Italian actor Maurizio Bianucci who has taken part in important and successful series such as Suburra, in numerous theatrical plays and RAI fictions that declaims the poem in the Italian version entitled “Profluvi” by the Sicilian poet Vincenzo Cali ‘, while the English one entitled “Flows” is declaimed by the journalist Annalina Grasso, who frames the works of the international artist, founder of the “New Surrealism Now” movement, with restless and alienating words, Santiago Ribeiro some shows us how we would probably be if we totally liberated our unconscious and our drives: naked and blind, not really free, but lost, euphoric, not happy.
Can we look at the pandemic, the changing world, the lockdown, the restrictions, in a different way? How many times have we thought about freeing our impulses? The Portuguese artist Ribeiro shows us our unconscious in a video made between three Italians to pay homage to his “New Surrealism” which can tell us a lot about ourselves, concerning the time, we are living.
