Inês Moura
Visual Artist and Educator
Coimbra , Portugal
1984, Coimbra, Portugal. Inês Moura develops her artistic work mainly in the areas of photography, drawing and installation. Coimbra, Lisbon and São Paulo are cities to which she is deeply connected and which are part of her fragmented, tattooed identity, gained as a traveller. Images, words, the space as a matter, often appear in her works as a form of expression of a deep connection to Nature, to the places she inhabits, to an archeology of memory and time. She has a degree in Painting-Fine Arts (FBAUL -2009) and a Master in Arts and Artistic Procedures (IA-UNESP - 2013). After almost 12 years living abroad in São Paulo, Brazil, where she also developed her career in art-education, having spent 8 years teaching arts, design and creative thinking, essentially through project-based learning, she returns to Portugal in November 2020, where she is currently almost exclusively dedicated to her art studio.
