Born in 1964 in Lisbon. Lives and works in Lisbon.
Palma’s work frequently handles questions of technological development, ecology, the belief in images, the idea of power, the infanto-juvenile world, the obsession for the machine. His art unfolds into drawing, sculpture, multimedia installation, video, artist books and performance.
