About

Emotionally charged, Eunice’s Maia original textured abstract art has been described as “intense, expressive, fulminant and positive”. Eunice’s expansive surfaces command the attention of passers-by, and transform a static wall into a living being.

She uses acrylic and mixed media to create her explosive art in an irrevocable commitment to abstraction, a method by which she feels she can free her paintings into purely pictorial, color and composition issues.

Her artwork varies with volumes, depth, layers of colors that wove organically in and out of each other and movement which changes the dynamic and power of each painting.

Eunice places mixed elements that are pushed and pulled along with the acrylic paint, to create an original and powerful sculptural relief that exudes emotion to the viewer. Her canvases invite the viewer to contemplate and connect to her work.

“The majority of my work is inspired by the classic music I listen to. Painting is constant movement, constant change. The creation process is cathartic, allowing myself to spill out onto my canvas as a release. That’s also why my work alternate from bright airy colors to darker hues.”

She lived for a few years in Mozambique where she devoted mainly to drawing. When Eunice returned to Portugal she worked for several years in advertising and it was during this period that she intensely dedicated herself to painting.

She pursued her professional career In Lisbon and her work was shown in many exhibitions across the world. Today her paintings form part of private and public collections across Europe.

Eunice’s work has received constant acclaim, winning numerous awards.
She studied at National Society of the Fine Arts in Lisbon and attended AR.CO.
She has a Master degree in Contemporary Art by Católica University
