Collection: MauríciaS, visual artist

Artist featured by Arca Gallery The One in a collection.


MauriciaS (born 1980, Portugal) is a contemporary artist who lives and works in Porto and exhibits her work worldwide. She began showcasing her art in 2021/2022, participating in numerous group and solo exhibitions in galleries and art fairs since then.

MauriciaS completed a Drawing course at Cooperativa Árvore in Porto in 2010 and a professional Photography course at the Instituto Português de Fotografia do Porto. These educational experiences provided her with a strong technical and conceptual foundation, allowing her to explore various forms of artistic expression.

As an artist, MauriciaS focuses on representing feelings through a plurality of artistic mediums, including drawing, fine arts, photography, and digital art. Her creative process involves questioning and exploring emotions using color and shape, balanced with figurative portraits. She believes in the essential inclusion of feelings in art, enabling them to materialize without temporal connotations. Additionally, she explores the discursive potential of exhibition methods to convey messages clearly and impactfully.
