Rosana Ricalde (1971, Niterói) lives and works in Coimbra, Portugal. Throughout Ricalde’s practice she has incorporated elements of text and employing calligraphy to build forms which question where visual poetry and drawing begin. In doing so, she reveals the hidden language and stories associated with her works, which traverse time while echoing otherworldly civilizations, stories and histories. She has a bachelor’s degree in Engraving from the School of Fine Artes, Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro. In 2008 she completed an artistic residency for the V Bienal de Arte e Cultura, São Tomé e Príncipe, and at Eko Susak, Island of Susak, Croatia; and in 2005 for the Perambulações at Rotterdam, Netherlands. She was awarded the Prémio CNI, SESI Marcantonio Vilaça in its third edition.
