Bordalo II is part of a continuity and reinvention of the artistic heritage bequeathed by his grandfather: Real Bordalo.
After studying painting at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Lisbon, he discovered sculpture and became interested in a variety of materials that gradually moved him away from painting.
Today, his work revolves around the materialistic character of our society, in which excessive production and consumption generate a continuous emission of waste, which is the cause of the massive destruction of our planet.
Thus, Bordalo II has been working to exploit this waste as raw material in the construction of his small and large scale artworks, vehicles of a universal manifesto.
