Julião Sarmento (born in Lisbon, 1948) is a Portuguese multimedia artist and painter.
Sarmento studied painting and architecture at the Lisbon School of Fine Arts. He began exhibiting film, video, sound, painting, sculpture, installation and multimedia in the seventies, but also developed several site-specific projects.
He has exhibited his work extensively in one-man and group shows. Sarmento represented Portugal at the Venice Biennial in 1997. His work is represented in several museums and private collections, including a partial room showing at London’s Tate Modern.
The work featured is largely collage-based or a combination of collage and sketched images.
Sarmento lives and works in Estoril, Portugal; he is represented by Sean Kelly Gallery in New York, and Galerie Daniel Templon in Paris and Brussels.
