Francisco Miguel

Bio: Hi! My name is Francisco Miguel and I'm a multidisciplinary artist currently studying Fine Art at Chelsea College of Arts in London. I hold a Foundation Diploma in Art and Design from Arts University of Bournemouth (2018-2019) and concluded the course Cinema and Vídeo at Escola Artística António Arroio in Lisbon (2016-2018). ​ I'm interested in the value of the encounter within image making processes as a search for new dialogues that build our pictorial future.
