RITA ANDRADE

Visual Artist

Born in 1998 in Lisbon, Portugal, Rita completed her bachelor's degree in Painting in 2020 at the Fine Arts University of Lisbon. In September 2021, she relocated to London, United Kingdom, to pursue a Master's degree in Art and Politics at Goldsmiths, University of London.

Completing her dissertation titled "How Art and Education Can Make a Change in Honduran Children's Lives: Artistic and Fieldwork Research" with distinction, Rita currently resides in Lisbon.

As both an artist and activist, Rita utilizes painting as a peaceful form of communication to convey her message. She firmly believes in the transformative power of art in effecting social change and intervention.

Her noteworthy projects, resulting in solo exhibitions, have focused on advocating for Human Rights in Palestine ("I Can't Breathe Since 1948", 2021; "Identity and Land", 2023) and promoting education for the safety and rights of Honduran children ("Hope in The Shadows", 2022/2023).

Inspired by her travels to Palestine and Honduras, Rita emphasizes the importance of immersive fieldwork research before addressing the circumstances of a country and its people.

“Artists can have a very important role in the world. Art tells the stories of the voiceless in various shapes and forms, allowing us to truly connect in a spirit of understanding.”
