Portugal, 2016

Every three months mART invites a group of artists from Macau and Lisbon to showcase their talent in our online gallery, by creating an art piece inspired on a topic provided by us. Door is our second edition’s theme.


The work:

A door can be considered a symbol of transition, but also an element very important in the arts, because it’s a way of transmitting a thought, a state or even a specific circumstance. As a result, the artist decided to work on the door as an object but also as a symbol of passage, search and the unknown.

The artist:

Mello-L (Portugal) 

Maria Borges, also known as Mello-L, is 22 years old. Working in the area of illustration, comics and graphic design, she is currently completing a Masters in Illustration and Animation, in IPCA, Barcelos. For those interested in knowing more about her artistic career, it is possible to follow her comics — Ayaka and Yuki — in the Portuguese newspaper Jankenpon.

 Note: The artist has authorised mART to publish this work.
