The use of drawing in Luís Nobre’s (Lisbon, Portugal, 1971) works has the purpose of putting in open dialogue different meanings that comes from different time periods where figurations, geometries or other formal elements were developed. The artists doesn’t make a simple cataloging of forms but he articulates and structures visual thought. Therefore, drawing reconnects ideas and concepts, circum-scribes units, enunciates complexities, and describes relationships between forms. 
Luis Nobre most prominent exhibitions include “Cristal”, (Carlos Carvalho Arte Contemporânea, Lisbon, Portugal, 2012), “Por detrás da aparência” (Museu Nacional Soares dos Reis, Porto, Portugal, 2010), “Hold it!” (Location One, New York USA, 2008),“Germinal - o núcleo Cabrita Reis na Colecção de Arte Fundação EDP” (curated by Ana Anacleto and Pedro Gadanho, MAAT . Lisbon, Portugal),“Processo e Transfiguração”, (Casa da Cerca, Almada, 2010), “Location 1 at Monkeytown”, (Brooklyn, Estados Unidos, 2008),“E=mc2” (curated by Miguel Amado, Museu da Ciência em Coimbra, 2005), “7 Artistas ao 10º Mês” (Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian, Lisbon, 1996).
