Maria Rodrigues is a Portuguese artist who is planning on attending the Faculty of Fine Arts in Oporto, Portugal.
Finding both drawing and photography mesmerizing, her work leans towards the human figure. Although it's through the click of a camera, that she's able to materialize her vision of both the world and the beauty from within. Using photography as a means of communication, she exposes the engaging details of a city or country, and people in general. In the end, it's a matter of capturing the essence of things and of each and one individual. In terms of drawing, she stays focused on working and exploring the contrasts of light-shadow, the color and the forms, without feeling the need to have a definite style or stick to techniques and specific art branches.
