About Mónica Pinto de Almeida : Mónica Pinto who was born in the north of Spain and spent most of her childhood between Spain and the north of Portugal now has her own studio in Sintra, Portugal. Mónica is driven by her passion where her memories are an integral part of her imagery and are nouns such as memory, history, poetry and shapes that build her own personal and daily universe. All the lighting pieces and objects created by Mónica follow a narrative of emotions and stories creating a uniqueness and timeless design where her artistic education mixed with her sensorial universe is translated into designs of conceptual and architectural language, poetic and innovative at the same time.
STATEMENT OF ART:
Art for me is the purest form of expression of the humankind. The expression of the inconscient of the artist where all the questions, doubts and restlessness of the soul and mind become matter. Design is the translation of art through a conscient thinking of everything which makes your environment more special.
“Each line is the beginning of a story”
