More

Ursula Mestre is a Portuguese Visual Artist, born in 87, currently based in Edinburgh.
Her work consists on the exploration of the female body framed in oneiric, dark esthetics while revolving around the concept of myth.
References to classical, pagan goddesses, nymphs, legends and tales can be found troughout her work.
Ursula has been developing it through several media – mainly photography, video,installation and performance – but she has been dedicating her research especially to photography in the past years.
Be it portraying others or her own body, her work reflects a critical attitude of self-contemplation which proposes to achieve a state of art that’s feminine, while fixing in the moment all the beauty and complexity of women – their mystery, their sensuality, their shapes, their soul. Ursula has been collaborating with other artists, from music to fashion or even poetry.
