Influenced by the great painters of abstract art, Sara Seabra rejects traditional painting and gives wings to her emotions and expressions in the pieces she produces. Your feelings are represented directly, throughthe movements formed on the screens, thes colors and shades. The influence of artists such as Wassily Kandinsky and Jackson Pollock is predominantly denoted in his artistic expression.

In his painting, Miguel Ângelo explores the question of the connection between images, referring to an idea of memory or individual narrative. Above any concern with resemblance to the model he takes as a basis, his work is dominated by the value given to the performative character of the painting gesture and its materiality. For the construction of his works, constantly involved in the field of figurative painting, whether in portraits or landscapes, the artist collects images of cinematographic frames, photographs of his daily life and works by various artists throughout the history of art. These images are transformed throughout the painting process, ending up representing something that is present outside of them.
