“TRACING LIGHT | Atlas of Lisboa” project (title > work in progress) is going to be a diary of my time as Artist in Residence at PRISMA – Núcleo de artistas” in Lisboa, February 2024. 

I intend to create a comprehensive visual documentation of the city’s luminosity. Through a combination of travel illustration, narrative cartography, and on-location painting, I aim to to craft a series that captures the atmospheric qualities of Lisboa.

The process will include crafting maps that go beyond mere navigation, and become visual stories conveying the essence of each locale. Concurrently, I will employ the authentic practice of painting on location to respond directly to the dynamic interplay of light and shadow.

This diary will become a full documentation at the end of the PRISMA Residency time.
