- ABOUT | Manu Souza Ceramics | Portugal
Almost nothing of the same With a degree in Graphic Design, Manuela Souza has used his skills in advertising, but also in experimental projects. Helping non-privileged African women, sharing their knowledge and teaching them how to be successful through their artistic abilities - and not by encouraging unrestrained consumption - has been a new path, which, despite being antagonistic to their profession of root is a source of personal pride. Having lived in different countries, such as Brazil, Italy, Angola, South Africa, Sweden, Senegal and Portugal, Manuela was inspired by the colors, shapes, letters and symbols of antagonistic concepts such as the European and the African to create her pieces. Art seen not as poetry, but as the materialization of its multicultural experiences. For the use of the pun with the expression “controversial”, the artist explains that this exhibition is a mixture of everything: mandalas, astrology, Frida Kahlo, the bottom of the sea, Portugal, African accessories. “There are those who think that this lack of unity may not match Design, but what I present in this exhibition are fragments of my life experiences. And life stories may be meaningless for some, but they can be engaging or motivating for others. ” SELECTED Stores Mercado 48 | Olá Breiner | Mercado na Invicta Árvore | Oxala | Casa da Rainha Cozy Yoga | Aqui a Volta | Cais a Porta Icon Shop Pt | Delta Experience | D'Olival Home Limbo Shop EXHIBITIONS Design Contra o Verso / Lisbon / 2017 Belas Artes / Porto / 2018

To play, press and hold the enter key. To stop, release the enter key. Illustrating from the inside out When the box is full ... it is best to empty it by illustrating, and that is when everything can happen. Leaving the comfort zone is one of the most difficult things to do, as a graphic designer I have always developed works that my clients asked for or needed, but never from something that only I wanted... To get around this situation and develop my own projects was like walking in endless circles... Until the moment I found a way out: Connecting with myself, it seems to be easy... But to silence out and listen to what comes from the inside it was one of the most difficult things to notice, right now I was going through an existential crisis living in Dakar, Senegal. Simple routines started to change my thinking, like leaving a pad of paper always within reach after meditation, and that's how after almost 20 years I started drawing again! I started drawing again and opened a YouTube channel to share this, right after migrating to Portugal I decided to go further and enrolled in two universities in Porto, by surprise the two accepted me and started another gym: working and studying at Belas Arts and ESAD at the same time. The result of this is present in every illustration developed that today can be found around the world hanging from some wall. Awakening what is asleep in us ... this is the goal I have every day when I wake up, and you? What's your problem?
