The postcolonial condition is at the heart of Francisco Vidal's work. Born in Portugal from Angolan and Cape Verdean parents, Vidal considers himself both African and a product of the diaspora and cultural fusion. Vidal explores themes of mixed identities, dissidence and mobility. His drawings, sculptures and installations stand out for their visual lexicon, mixing various influences, from cubism to graffiti via calligraphy. Vidal lives and works in London and is represented by Tiwani Contemporary.
