Space T celebrates in 2012, 18 years of existence, always
with a constant concern "Transforming Men Into Princes," or rather,
look at Art and the Art, the reintegration of all as no exception.

Founded in 1994, the Space T develops its work in
three distinct areas (Social, Cultural and Training) whose main objective is
the integration of people with bio-psycho-social (drug addicts, mentally and
physically disabled, elderly, without homelessness, HIV, etc.), between
"Normal sayings" through art, to foster self-esteem and self-concept
of each of these people.
In 1994, for many this was a utopian space, almost unreal,
but the truth is that the Space T believe and fight for a better world, where
all as we are accurate and valid, which all have potential, where there is no
"poor things" and "generous", essentially believe in a
world where all are complementary and mutually help each other, we believe the
acceptance of difference and the Other.
Throughout this period the Space T have seen their
work recognized by awards, award in 2006, the Equality is Quality Award, given
by the Commission for Equality in Labor and Employment, most notably, in 2007
the appointment by the Foundation Calouste Gulbenkian International Prize for
the Raymond Georis Price: The Mercator Found, the award in 2008, the 3rd.
Hospital of the Future Award in the category of Social Services, in 2009 the
award Prince Henry by the Brotherhood of Tripe Porto and in 2010 the award of
Honorable Mention Equality is Quality, awarded by the Commission for Gender

In this sense, I decided to support the offer of three
paintings, so they can be sold at auction to take place on February 19, 2012,

Jean-Pierre Blanchon, a Frenchman in love with painting, wrote a book with the quotations of 1500 Portuguese artists, the Quotation Portuguese Artists in Auction - Guide 2006/2010 (Author's edition). The author has an antique shop in the Chiado area and an auction house.
Once arrived in Portugal in 1991, lived up to his addiction to not lose any auction. Economist by training, the lack of data for cataloging artists bothered him. He went to work: analyzing auction catalogs, able to evaluate the evolution of 50 Portuguese Painters between 1974 and 1994. He concluded that only the investment in stock market had gotten over the average return of Portuguese paintings in this period - whose values ranged between 6.6% and -2.8% - relative to inflation.
In this guide we can see that the sculptor Manuel Pereira da Silva scored 10 of his contemporary paintings at auction, during the referred period (2006-2010), was sold 7 paintings in Watercoulor.
