José Lourenço’s project Panorama (2013) is made up of three drawings using Indian ink on paper. It is a site-specific project that was created for the entrance hall of Carpe Diem Arte e Pesquisa building. The work is inserted in to the mouldings of panels of ‘azulejos’ or tiles from the XVIII century, which can also be found there. The subject of the work takes its inspiration from several views over the city of Lisbon collected by the artist.

He is represented in various national and international collections, namely the Fundação PLMJ, the Museu de Arte Contemporânea Union Fenosa – MACUF, the Fundación Pedro Barrié de la Maza, the Colecção Norte de Arte Contemporânea – Governo da Cantábria and Barclays Bank, amongst others.
