Margarida Selvagem for exhibition "Ilhas 2020 - Isolation"

Updated: Aug 26

About her artistic forced isolation ..."The will to do this came up because of all the controversy around wearing masks, and the resistance to do it, but the little time we take to reflect upon our social masks"


Margarida Selvagem (Margarida Brazão) was born in Madeira Island, Portugal. With a subtropical climate and warm colors all around, Margarida grew in an exotic place that would later influence her aesthetics.

After finishing her degree in Psychology, she also studied hypnotherapy, which ended up being an abundant fountain of inspiration for her work. In 2019, she started working as a freelance artist and took off to Barcelona to study Art Therapy. Since then, she has exhibited her work in Portugal and Spain.

In Margarida’s work, psychology and art blend together, with a mystic atmosphere and a geometric touch.

She works on themes like self acceptance, freedom of being and an appreciation for diversity, whether it be in beauty or in perspective. Her paintings in mixed media are evidence of her passion for vibrant colors, earth tones and the female figure.

This piece is about accepting diversity, whether it be in beauty or in perspective. Your wilderness is what makes you unique, and there is nothing wilder than accepting your singularity. It is wild to appreciate your little (and big) flaws, even wilder to contemplate your true self and all of its details. Accepting your diverse nature is a hard working process, but also one that pays off in the end, for the panoramic beauty of it. This applies to the making of “All Colours Are Wild” as well.
