Patricio Mawete

Painter | Angola

Mawete has been working on the conception of the fundamental ideas of the term “substraciomnism”. and its influence can also be seen in his later work. Some say that “Substracionism” is the philosophy that brings one back to the space where the environment has assumed the essence of human life, where the laws of nature continue to illuminate our senses in face of everything around us.

“We must continue to philosophize.”
