Sergio Cruz was born in Portugal. He lives in London as an artist/filmmaker. He initially studied Sound and Image at Fine Art universities in Portugal and Holland. With the objective of combining his interest in cinema, performance and fine arts, Cruz undertook two master degrees in London, the first in Fine Arts at Central Saint Martins and the second in “Dance for the Screen” at The Place- London Contemporary Dance School. His art practice has become since then solely devoted to film/video as a medium to articulate gesture. He creates short films that relates to nature, the environment and humanity.Sergio’s films have won several awards and have been internationally broadcast on television (for instance as part of British Channel 4 Three Minute Wonder series’) and screened in film festivals and art galleries (including the collective exhibition Figuring Landscapes held at the Tate Gallery, London and the solo show at the Art Claims Impulse gallery in Berlin).
