José dos Santos
Born 1904. Died 1996, Portugal.
José dos Santos, for all his self-obsession, teaches us much about the nature of creativity, particularly when exercised in adversity. He knew nothing of modern art, yet freely used found materials in extremely inventive ways to give his creatures expression in a way that is an example to all. His electrifying opinions on human sexuality and the position of women, as opposed to men (of whom he had a fairly low opinion), rendered him an advanced thinker."
Hugh Adams, Bristol, England
