Change Lisbon to Rural Madeira? Yes...Diogo Cardoso for Art Center Caravel

“Art is whatever you feel to do.

It’s about feelings, not the final object, but about how you express yourself to the world around you.

It’s when you want to add something to the universe, if you just make something for sale, it’s not art.”


Diogo in his studio


Diogo Cardoso came to Madeira 3 years ago, moving from Lisbon.

He already painted in Lisbon doing some art courses at school and working in design too.

Coming to madeira made him feel more energy and having more time to work, he thinks that life here is less hectic than in Lisbon and that there is more space to relax and produce art which helped his creativity to flourish.
