Starting today, we have a Art show for Ganso Artis and FilipeMarques Bettencourt until the end of the month. Today’s opening was fun!!
Filipe, born in Terceira, Azores, Portugal. fell in love with Photography at the age of 17 in a basic photography class in high school. Since then, he has worked in Fashion, Band Photographs and Fine Art/Landscape images.
His work has been featured on the Digital Photo Pro Website and Ovation TV “My Art” program. Filipe has sold museum quality prints to collectors internationally and has received honorable mentions for his work in various publications.
“The main focus of my work has always been Fashion/Editorial photography. But I’ve always tried to leave my doors open to different avenues.
My Fine Art work is what I do to relax, to get away from it all. It’s my “reset button”. A chance for me to slow down and take a closer look at everyday. I’ve been lucky enough that others that others relate to my art. “
Filipe lives and works in Minneapolis, Minnesota U. S. A.
