Tomás João, aka Nature the Artist, started his artistic practice in 2016 with painting, photography, video and street installations.

Nature was always his source of inspiration, and elements of the natural world were already entrenched in his first steps. But it was only later that he decided to give nature full protagonist, moving away from the author's stamp, allowing this role be assumed by natural processes that happen without human intervention. It was then when he abandoned the pseudonym "Forest Dump".

Today his work mirrors natural phenomena that can be found in caves, forests, in the sea, etc. And the artist only feels that he is the vehicle for exposing these works of art that already existed on the planet and that, in his opinion, do not need human manipulation to be considered true works of art!
