Kalahari Hues at Rhino Home : Porto, Portugal
Rhino home is thrilled to announce the introduction of our very first artist and her original pieces of work.
Victoria Marques Pinto, born in Oporto, Portugal, 1994, with Spanish and Portuguese nationality, is a multidisciplinary photographer and artist who has lived in Portugal, Spain, England and Austria and currently works between Madrid and London. She is represented in the UK by the London based gallery, Black Box Projects.
Through her mixed-media landscapes, Marques Pinto explores and emphasises the human impact on the natural world. The artist intervenes into traditional landscape compositions with paint and other materials to create strange new realities, sometimes witty and playful, but always hinting at a greater permanence and perhaps consequence of our actions. The series Kalahari Hues is a visual ode to the fragility and beauty of the ecosystem in the southern Kalahari desert.
She has a degree in Arts, Design and Media and Art History from Richmond International University in London (2016), she has studied Photography, at the Cambridge School of Art in Cambridge at the Anglia Ruskin University, United Kingdom (2013) and holds a certificate degree in Digital Photography by the Portuguese Institute of Photography (IPF), from Oporto, Portugal (2012). In 2019 she completed her master's degree in Fine Art Photography at the European Institute of Design (IED) in Madrid.
Marques Pinto has been included in several group shows in London. In 2019 the artist exhibited her first solo show, Imminent Impressions, at Espacio 28014 in Madrid, Spain.
