The shadow of the 180 – Mafalda Slam
“We are invited to take a journey on self discovery through the poetic subject:their current identity is made up of all past experiences, who act as a shadow/ reminder to learn from them in order to avoid repeating patterns. The horizontal line in the composition with two figures facing each other (one in the shadow and the other in the light, one east and the other west), illustrate the continuous cycle that starts and ends with break of dawn.”

Mafalda Slam is a multidisciplinary artist from Lisbon. From a young age she started expressing herself creatively with drawing and dancing (mostly ballet). Having studied Arts in the Secondary Level, she later enrolled in Faculdade de Belas Artes de Lisboa where she studied Multimedia Art.

Using drawing and painting she started playing around with body movement (influenced by her background in dance) and colour blocking. Which resulted in her work being the pursuit of harmony between grace and strength, the celebration of the female body and nature. The body will always be the glue in both her digital and paper work.
