ALEXANDER Limarev was born in Novosibirsk, Russia’s third largest city, and the capital of Siberia. He is an artist and visual poet, photographer and curator. On the influence of the place on the artistic creation, makes the words of the Marquis de Custine when he said that Russia is the prison of the peoples, whose key is kept by the Emperor. This explains that he has not yet visited Porto, which associates with the historic area, the Arrábida bridge and the Atlantic Ocean.
