Madalena Fonseca

I want to create a new reality making use of a similitude/emulation, already so far removed in time and space of your starting point.

 

I’m graduated in Painting by the Faculty of Fine Arts of Lisbon, where also I specialized in Printmaking. I created with some printmakers the association “Associação de Gravura Água- Forte” in Lisbon.

My activity develops in the areas of painting, drawing and printmaking.
