Ana Monteiro (b.1990) is a Portuguese figurative artist whose practice is a reflection upon the concept of the “Self”, through an aesthetic that is built around the idea of symbolism and magical realism.
She holds an MA in Painting from the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Porto and a BA in Painting from the same institution and exhibits regularly since 2011.
Contemplating the kaleidoscopic features of the "self", her paintings are deeply allegoric: through them, the portrait is shaped as a symbol, in an attempt to dive into the most hidden places of the identity and understand, at each step of the way, how daunting is the task of trying to figure out what makes us human - in our relation to the Other, to the social landscape and, perhaps the most important of all, to ourselves.
