Meïssane Santos de Oliveira

Short bio

I was born in 2001 in Amiens and studied visual arts. I focused my research field on portraits through photography and painting. I also studied the new ways to depict people through fashion, objects or music.

Description of general work / practice

My work focuses on the ways to depict myself and others. In my paintings I depict myself through the representation of the things I love and admire. I like to paint the things that are part of my daily life or that inspired me. It could be a person, an object or a feeling. While photography is for me a way of keeping memories of places and clothing that are important for queer people. These portraits are a way to tell stories while paying tribute to previous generations.
