Artist: Mafalda Vasconcelos
Mafalda Vasconcelos uses art as a way of exploring her biracial identity and the cultural influences in her life. The inspiration behind Mafalda's work is symbolism and spiritualism based in her Mozambican culture. The artwork she creates are based on souls rather than real human figures representing her ancestors from the Nharinga people of Mozambique. The stylized and symbolic features that suggest human form and express strong human emotions. The colorful geometrical shapes and symbols are a language that Mafalda has developed through exploring the visual elements in art and in her own mixed and diverse background.
