Nuno Pedrosa holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Faculdade de Belas Artes University of Lisbon and a Master of Fine Arts from the San Francisco Art Institute, with a major concentration in Sculpture and New Genres. The adoption of technologies and procedures typical to machine design and fabrication, an all out war on rhetoric devices and a hands-on inquiry into the ontology of the work of art, the rationale of which could be best described as being almost exclusively instrumental, are amongst the most usual subjects and methods engaged by Nuno Pedrosa in his work. At the present moment, Nuno Pedrosa furthers his inquiries in the framework of a Phd degree at the École doctorale d’arts plastiques, esthétique et sciences de l’art, Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne. He is currently a recipient of a four-year scholarship from Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia, and was awarded previously with a Fulbright/Carmona e Costa Foundation Scholarship and a San Francisco Merit Scholarship. Nuno Pedrosa has participated in numerous solo and group shows both nationally and internationally, the most recent of which being «Where are you from? Contemporary Portuguese Art», Faulconer Gallery, Bucksbaum Center for the Arts, Iowa and «New Polyphonies: Contemporary Art from Portugal», University of Northern Iowa.
