Invited to participate in the Portuguese world Exhibition in 1940 .. during this decade he made many exhibitions and won several prizes.. Since the beginning of the 40's , Surrealism was one of his main interests and this fact lead to the formation of the Lisbon Surrealistic Group in 1947 with the participation of other Artists such as Fernando Azevedo, Mario Cesariny and José Augusto França.
