Madalena is driven by her great passion for the arts, and for that reason everything she does revolves around that. Madalena studied Scenography and Costumes at António Arroio Art School, graduated in Painting at Lisbon Faculty of Fine Art in 2018, and completed a Masters degree in
Arts and Cultural Enterprise at Central Saint Martins, in London, in 2021. Between 2017 and 2018,
Madalena did an exchange program in Budapest Hungary, at the Magyar Képzomuveszeti Egyetem
(Hungarian University of Fine Art). During these months, she integrated with the local community of
artists, participating in exhibitions, lectures, and site-specific installations.
Madalena has taken part in two International Biennials: Contextile Biennial, in Guimarães, in
2022, and ArtFem Macao Female art Biennial, in Macao, in 2018. She was a finalist in some art prize
contests, such as the Young Creators Art Prize, Guarda’s International Art Prize, and Paula Rego art
prize, and has received an Honorable Mention at Jovarte Biennial. Madalena has done more than 50
solo and group shows, since 2015.
