Discover in this article five young people belonging to the new generation of artists.

Sara Seabra

Influenced by the great painters of abstract art, Sara Seabra rejects traditional painting and gives free rein to her emotions and expressions in the pieces she produces. Your feelings are directly represented, through the movements formed on the screens, in colors and tones. The influence of artists such as Wassily Kandinsky and Jackson Pollock in their artistic expression is predominantly denoted. However, Sara Seabra offers a new element to her painting, introducing lines from a medium other than paint - the artist introduces yarn and fabric to her production, whether on canvas or in other elements.

Joana Duarte

Joana Duarte's compositions describe the essential lines of painting: color, shape, texture and movement. In his works with great abstract influences, few elements with undefined boundaries are used that create interesting chromatic relationships of great subtlety. The patches of color present in his painting offer the viewer a door to raw emotions and to the immaterial, preferentially exploring the tactile qualities and sensitive effects of color.

Patricia Marinho Oliveira

Patrícia Marinho explores the possibilities of expression in her graphic works by being inspired by her surroundings. In his pieces, everyday figures are depicted, whether human or organic. The importance of research in the artist's creative process is highlighted by the influence of the minimalist lines that made it possible to build an easily recognizable line. He currently works as a freelancer in the areas of illustration and graphic design, continuing to be present in the culture of the city of Guimarães, continuing to exhibit at Guimarães Noc Noc, illustrating the Use-It map of Guimarães, and the most recent, the installation commemorative of the 154th anniversary of the birth of Raul Brandão “Do you hear the cry? Hear him”.

Miguel Angelo Marques

In his painting, Miguel Ângelo explores the issue of the connection between images, referring to an idea of ​​memory or individual narrative. Above any concern with the resemblance to the model on which he is based, the value given to the performative character of the painting's gesture and its materiality prevails in his work. For the construction of his works, constantly involved in the field of figurative painting, whether in portrait or landscape, the artist collects images from 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.
