My name is José Pando Lucas AKA José Emoções lately. I was born in Porto, Portugal, but my brain was formed in the mountains of Trás-os-Montes in the villages of Fornos and Freixo de Espada à Cinta. I am 23 years old. I am currently finishing my Painting degree in Prague, Czech Republic.
I am interested in all sorts of things, from "old ladies with boxing gloves" (Harmony Korine) to extraterrestrial purple aliens who want to steal my chocolate candies. I also believe in staying in transit, in intersections, in good kindo’ confusion (no self-righteousness please!), in youth attack, in do it yourself, and in ACTION!
Lately I’ve been developing both painting and video projects on several subjects, mainly about multi culture, union, feminism and loving (something, somewhat, somewhere, someone).
I have been a member of TOCA since the very first days and have gladly helped bring the project up while we were working at Rua das Oliveiras in Porto. In my opinion, while it lasted, the “community house” we were running, was one of the place with the most interesting stuff happening in Porto, together with other organizations, such as "Casa Viva" and "Moinho" (Espinho). And what mattered the most is we were doing it for ourselves and for Porto. For the people in the city to have the possibility to have a “out of the mainstream” place where they could enjoy concerts/ performances / artsyshittz/ videos/ beers and making real human connections. Looking forward to bringing this project to some other level in the near future.
