Nélio Saltão

Nélio Saltão

Amieiro, Montemor-o-velho (Portugal), 1949

Nélio Saltão is a prime example of a self-taught artist. He began painting spontaneously; educating himself by observing other artists, listening to their advice and following their theoretical practice. He started with watercolour, and gradually transitioned to oil. After developing his skills in an initial figurative phase, Saltão was eager to learn more, improve and above all, try his hand at the burgeoning new style of Abstract Expressionism. Saltão was a natural with this new form, thriving on artistic freedom and spontaneity. Saltão’s works have been shown in numerous individual and group shows in esteemed galleries across Portugal.
