This is the sardine which dreamed to be a shark…
This is Raphael Bordallo Pinheiro, personified in a sardine. With his own style. Relaxed. Focused. A thinker. Creative. Always ready with a pencil. Always with his restless originality. Nothing escapes his eyes. The poor and the rich. Ceramics, journalism, cartoons. Traditions, society, politics... one single artist, full of well-known and hidden talents.
