Mixed Media Artist

Raquel Melgue
Oporto (1985).
Lives and works in Lisbon.

Master in Visual Arts-Digital Intermedia and Degree in Visual Arts-Painting, from the University of Évora.

Mixed media visual artist who develops her work in the areas of photography, video and installation, which has been presented since 2007, the year she was selected for the AIAS - Prize of Honor in Zurich, Switzerland.

Her artistic practice arises from the intention of promoting an experience of immersion in an imagined and fictional universe, from the exploration of the limits of individual memory.
Reality imposes itself as an exercise in transgression and/or as an imminent imperative of transfiguration from the real to the virtual world.

Her path is defined by the interdisciplinary intersection with other artists.

In 2020, she creates, in partnership with Fábio de Carvalho, the creative studio OH!MANA.
