Madeiran traditional male costumes - painting by Jorge Santos Silva, on display at Hotel Porto Santa Maria, Funchal, Madeira Island

For over a year (2002-2003) brazilian painter Santos Silva lived on Madeira Island to perform an ambitious plan: make individual works for every room and public area of Vila Porto Mare, a hotel complex in Funchal that hence became an art gallery by itself.
At the beginning the paintings were heavily influenced by his brazilian origins. As he got acquainted with the island, the local themes became dominant.
