With a background in fashion design, artist Mafalda Vasconcelos turned to art as a way of exploring the different cultural influences in her life. Born in South Africa and growing up in Mozambique, there is evidence of African influence through Mafalda’s visual work. Through travel and exploring different cultures, the artist developed a unique artistic style that has a contemporary theme and aesthetic. Now residing in Melbourne, Mafalda continues to explore the female figure and soul, through a multicultural lens and with some fashion elements. | @ mmvce
