Raquel Schembri was born in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. She currently lives and works in London. After graduating from Guignard Art School, she lived for two and a half years in Germany studying at the Academy of Arts in Munich. During this period her work has undergone a big change, she discovered new medias and expanded her research towards photography and installation. Despite the use of other medias, painting has always been present, even in an indirect way: at the masses of colours in an installation or in a composition. Painting is not just paint on canvas, it became a way of thinking for her and it is a permanent parameter of her work.
