This auction is raising proceeds for The Hepatitis C Trust
Joana Galego was born in 1994 between not so tall mountains and the Atlantic Ocean, in Cascais, Portugal. After studying Painting at the University of Lisbon she moved to London for The Drawing Year, determined to stop working from photographs of her childhood. She is interested in language, love - in its many forms or absences - and one’s simultaneous hesitancy and excitement. Fascinated by drawing’s affair with failure she now works from memories, observational studies, art history and photography. In addition to various international private collections, Joana Galego’s work is found in the Royal Collection Trust of the British Royal Family, UK.
