Family, friend and colleague artists
I was privileged to be born into a family of artists, starting with
my great-grandfather A.
Roque Gameiro and my grandfather J.
Martins Barata. (See a brief report on a recent family exhibit.)
For many years, my mother worked as an illustrator. Several recent individual and collective exhibits celebrated her work. Click here to see the catalog cover from one of these exhibits; my mother's cv in illustrated form; and some samples of her work: Lançalote and Três De Braço Dado.
My brother Pedro is an architect; he also sketches a lot.
His blog regularly includes some of his wonderful sketches. Recently, Pedro had a solo exhibit of his "bonecos".
My niece MMadalena studies art and has done some wonderful
acrylics and watercolors.
She also has a blog.
In October 2007, in her first solo show, she exhibited a wonderful series of acrylics.
I tried to get two that I really liked, but they had already been sold :(

One of the best-known painters in the economics profession is also one of the best-known economists in the economics profession: Will Baumol
Do you know of any other economist artists whose links I could include here?
If so, please let me know. Thanks!
