Emerging Artist

Maisa Champalimaud

Born in Lisbon, where she continues to live and work, Maísa Champalimaud (b. 1987) uses painting as a path towards self-discovery. The artist argues that her lines are marked not by political currents or ideologies, but rather, numerous influences that have left a decisive imprint.

“When I was asked to extol the greatest interpreters of the Portuguese language by portraying Lusophone writers from around the world, I couldn't help thinking that it made perfect sense to paint them on top of the very medium that supports them: their books."
– Maísa Champalimaud, 2014
