Mafalda M. Gonçalves
Artist based in Lisbon, Portugal.
My work is mostly mural and easily accessible, sometimes with social or political themes.
I have a BA in Drawing from the Faculty of Fine Arts Lisbon and I regularly approach portrait through a monochromatic figurative style using vibrant colours, obtained from a palette of primary colours. The preference for figurative work is due to the fascination of trying to capture the essence of something as complex as a human being in such an ephemeral place subject to its immediate annulment like the street. My projects are always influenced by the location where they will be integrated, these being, many times, the starting point for the creative process.
