Joana Azevedo Rodrigues is a multidisciplinary artist born in Porto, Portugal, 2001, who began exploring form naturally and freely while she was studying fashion design, describing her process as instinctive and sentimental. She shifted her focus from designing for the body to designing the body, revealing an obsessive effort to reduce while glorifying the human form. She currently lives and works in London and is studying Fine Art at Central Saint Martins.
