RitaGT is a critical and intervening artist, approaching themes such as memory, identity or the importance of human rights. Having lived in many different countries enables her to have a broader vision, valuing the historical points of view of many cultures. The colonial symbolism that is recurrent in her work defines her own identity and artistic language. The artist uses imagery, words and performance revealing a constant interrogation and experimentalism in both material and conceptual aspects. RitaGT gained a BA in Communication Design from the Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Porto, concluded the Advanced Course in Visual Arts at Maumaus School of Visual Arts in Lisbon and attended to the MA program in Fine Arts from Malmö Art Academy – Lund University in Malmö, Sweden.
