From the inside out with Antonia Figueiredo

My name is Antonia, I am a multidisciplinary artist. I think my paintings evoke a sense of irreverent passion and female power. Using acrylic, oil pastels and collage on canvas, I use organic tones and strong colors textures to create classic and daily shapes contrasted with pop iconography and text. I was born in Brazil in 1997, I since then has established a new life for me in Lisbon.
