Portuguese artist Pedro Matos is set to open his first solo show in the United States on September 3rd at the Shooting Gallery in San Francisco. Entitled Ephemera, the new body of work features his oil on canvas paintings emulating the torn and faded posters frequently seen pasted on the side of buildings in an urban environment. As always, Pedro’s imagery juxtaposes beauty and decay as well as focuses on society’s downtrodden and forgotten.
