Empty Souls: Unveiling the Artistic Essence of MARKET Magazine
Welcome to the enchanting world of Market 33, where flavors, culture, and art intertwine to create a harmonious symphony for the senses. In this edition of the Market 33 Journal, we bring you an exclusive glimpse into the heart and soul of our community, as portrayed by the incredibly talented Portuguese artist, Num.para.
Discovering the Artist Behind the Canvas
Ana Malta, a visionary artist hailing from Lisbon, is the mastermind behind the captivating artwork gracing the cover of the second edition of MARKET, our official magazine. With a background in Painting from the Faculty of Fine Arts at the University of Lisbon, Ana’s creative journey has been a symphony of color, composition, and experimentation.
Through her distinctive approach, Ana has breathed life into her creation, “Empty Plates.” This vibrant masterpiece stands as a testament to her dedication to color, patterns, and the interplay of artistic elements. As a member of the esteemed artistic collective Vês.Três, Ana has exhibited her work in prestigious venues like Galeria São Mamede, Museu Colecção Berardo, and various biennials and galleries.
“Empty Plates” transcends mere aesthetics; it communicates a universal language that connects people across cultures and boundaries. Through art, and in this case, through food, we find a profound method of expression that resonates with souls worldwide. Each region’s cuisine and art breathe life into the spaces they inhabit, weaving stories of heritage and emotion.
In Ana’s words, “When I see empty plates, I think eventually they will be filled with the flavors of the world…” Her artwork stands as a tribute to the diverse tapestry of life experiences that find their place around shared tables. From local ingredients to intricate ceramics, every dish tells a tale of its origin and the hands that crafted it.
