Painter, illustrator and writer, Cruzeiro Seixas began to follow the Neo-realistic movement, but he soon entered the Surrealist Group of Lisbon, becoming one of the few able to transpose into the second half of the twentieth century, the visual and erotic legacy of Portuguese Surrealism of 30`s. Cruzeiro Seixas seeks to enhance the reality by the dream, this is why the title of one of his books is Hommage à la réalité (Homage to reality). Their creations are directed dreams, dreams that include a piece of intellectual speculation. Above all, he practices the hallucinations caused by knowledge. What is typically surreal.
