Oscar Wilde

Our Torel Avantgarde represents this writer in the two sides that most marked his life story.

In one of his hotel rooms in Porto, the square headboard represents the mental prison he was in, due to his sexual orientation.

At the same time, he was a funny and ironic artist, these characteristics being represented in the colorful rug.

Meet the artist Oscar Wilde...


Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde was a prolific Irish writer, who wrote plays, fiction, essays, and poetry.

After writing in different forms throughout the 1880s, he became one of London's most popular playwrights in the early 1890s.

He is remembered for his epigrams and plays, such as the novel “The Picture of Dorian Gray”, and by the circumstances of his arrest and early death. In this work, Oscar Wilde was portrayed with the confident and confident look of someone who knows exactly what he is doing and why he is doing it.

The artist was the creator of the Dandy Movement, which argued that the cult of beauty and beauty were the solution to the atrocities of the industrial era.


Some of his main works:

  • The canterville ghost;
  • Lord Arthur Savile's Crime;
  • The happy prince;
  • The importance of being earnest;
  • The picture of Dorian Gray.


Art movement: Aestheticism.


“Life is too important to be taken seriously.” – Oscar Wilde
