NATÁLIA GROMICHO

I don’t know what my life was without a way to express myself. All my life is written in my works, they speak from my soul’ - Natália Gromicho

Natália Gromicho was born in Lisbon, Portugal. At the Faculdade de Belas Artes de Lisboa, she studied painting and went on to graduate from Intensive Painting at the private ArCo School of Art in Lisbon. As an Expressionist artist, Gromicho’s work is often concerned with perception and reality. Her canvases are as energetic as the Lisbon streets with desiccating slogans and sunset red riots, and it is easy to see the personal influence of this bright chaotic city. Painted lines scrawl over deserted pastel buildings, the ubiquitous graffiti contrasting with the multiple layers.

The recurring image of a headless and armless female mannequin verges on the surreal, and within this metaphysical framework Gromicho paints with an anything-might-happen wildness. Her paintings are slowly piecing together a philosophical mosaic- and with more and more in demand, her unique vision only gets clearer. Having participated in more than 70 solo and group exhibitions, the artist has already represented her country in Italy, Brazil, Miami and Australia. Her works are now in several private and institutional collections worldwide.
