However, this time we have more than the incredible ARTsTOOL collection to show you. In the last few months, with all his skill, know-how and passion, our craftsman who dedicated all his life to the beautiful ancient art of Marquetry, Vitor Querido, prepared a surprise for you all: “Infinity Butterfly Console”. The newest work of art by Project CULTURE, with its delicate and colorful butterflies just in time for spring.
Vitor Querido was born in Gondomar, in the North of Portugal, in 1961. Fascinated by wood, he is now a celebrated master in the Portuguese marquetry art. He started to work as a woodcarver when he was 16 years old. At the age of 18, he decided to dedicate himself to marquetry due the beautiful ornaments he could create freely and also by coloring by himself wood veneers into one of a kind hues. In the 80s, he started to work as a freelancer and to teach twelve young apprentices.
From 2008 to 2014, Vitor worked as a cabinetmaker, a carpenter, and a wood turner. Later, during four years, he worked in wood restoration in Oficinas Santa Bárbara, also in Portugal. Currently, he pushes the limits of his selected art, Marquetry, in CULTURE’s creative hub proudly supported by Covet Foundation.
