Julião Sarmento produces paintings, sculptures, photographs, videos, and mixed-media works infused with literature and architectural imagery. He is heavily influenced by the Postmodern aesthetic, in which existing texts and images are appropriated and re-combined to create new meaning and to challenge ingrained patterns of thinking. From his beginnings, in the middle of the seventies, the work of Julião Sarmento has been characterized by its archival character. Thus, in his work describes feminine silhouettes, architectural plans, literary fragments and objects. Often, these coded iconographies explicitly present us with the signs needed to identify the source of his imagery and its meaning.
