After studying architecture across the globe and working for a couple of years in London, her passion for art, aesthetics and craftsmanship, as well as her urge to create at a faster pace, led Inês de Almeida e Paiva to found fresca studio in 2020.
Fresca studio is a Lisbon-based art studio working on relief prints using linocut, inspired in shapes of architecture, design and nature. All the original works are part of limited editions, handmade and individually inked and pressed by a single pair of hands. As a result of this printmaking technique, each print is unique - with a style that is defined by graphic abstraction and bold geometric shapes. Each relief print is part of a collection, allowing you to have them stand alone or to mix & match to customise your walls.
Fresca studio intends to establish as a Portuguese artistic project, which stands out for the uniqueness and exclusivity of the works and for the attention to detail, while aiming to share the amazing qualities of traditional printmaking techniques in contemporary art. The project has a social conscience side to it, with 5% of profits on prints reverting to a charity or a cause the artist stands up for.
