ANTÓNIO CARAMELO was born in Angola during the Année érotique (according to a song by Jane Birkin & Serge Gainsbourg) a time when it didn´t even existed kizomba or kuduro, only Merengue. He studied Fine Arts in Lisbon (Sculpture) and he attended a master in art and interactive communication in Barcelona, a master that is not even recognized in Spain. Currently he teaches and as he is disappointed with the education systems, he ponders to work as a bartender in Mexico. He exhibited regularly since 1999, the date coinciding with the departure of the moon from the Earth's orbit (see: TV show “Space1999”). For this reason he never exhibited on the moon, but relatively close, considering the tangible universe: "Touch me: It's about time!", Galerija Klovi?evi dvori, Zagreb, 2014, "SUL/SAL", Fundation Verbeke, Bélgica, 2014, "NÓS", Plataforma Revólver, Lisbon, 2014, "Sem Quartel / Without Mercy – exhibition", Sinsmógrafo, 2014, "Febre dos Fenos / Hay Fever", Cultivamos Cultura, S.
