Short Bio

The Portuguese artist born in 1986 develops a body of work which is essentially auto-biographical, reflecting on multiple current problems from philosophy, religion and politics. She proposes an hibridism which merges painting, literature, performance, sound, video and installation. She graduated in Visual Arts at ESAD School of Art and Design, Portugal, 2008. In that same year, she was awarded the BANIF PAINTING REVELATION Prize. In 2010 she won a D.G. Art grant/AWARD supported by the Portuguese Ministry of Culture for "PROJECT SKIN". In 2016, she won the** Young Creators Prize** awarded by the National Cultural Center with a sculptural/prosthesis project TITHEMI. In 2016 she was one of the selected for the shortlist Paula Rego Award. In 2018 finished her Painting Master Degree in the School of Fine Arts, Lisbon University, with distinction. The research and MA thesis was based on her own art work and the concepts of skin, heteronym, bachelor machines and process.
The studio was sponsored by BANIF bank from 2008 to 2017. In July 2019 Duvall won the Young European Prize promoted by Amadeo de Souza Cardoso Museum. In September 2019 Duvall started her PhD based on the concept of Epileptic Machines and her art work (heteronyms and hibridism) at the Fine Art School, Lisbon University with the prestigious scholarship by Fondation of Science and Technology (FCT).
Duvall exhibits regularly since 2006 in solo and group shows.
