Happy New Hope

Rita Correia

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. “New Year” is our first edition theme.

The work:

We asked for an illustration under the theme New Year. Rita Correia immediately accepted the challenge. In her own words, here is the description of the work:”When a new year begins, we all have hope that it is better than the previous one. We want to water it with renewed hope. We hope that, in the middle of all the mud that keeps burying our world deeper and deeper, a lotus flower is born.”

The artist:

Rita Correia is a little girl, a grown up woman, a daughter and a mother, a designer and an illustrator, a story teller and story singer, author and editor. After working for a multimedia company, she then had enough experience to be more successful as a freelance illustrator.
