My name is Daniel V. Melim. I was born in Portugal in 1982.
I was a finalist of the EDP Novos Artistas 2007 Award, winner of the Fidelidade Mundial Jovens Pintores Award in 2011 and a shortlister for the worldwide 100 Painters of Tomorrow project (Thames and Hudson 2014). I have been developing arts projects in Portugal, Spain, Brazil, Germany and the United Kingdom. I collaborated several years with the Gulbenkian Foundation's Educational Department, as well as with private art schools in Lisbon. My work is part of public and private collections
I am a Painting undergraduate from the University of Lisbon (2006) and an MA Applied Anthropology and Community and Youth Work graduate from Goldsmiths College, University of London (2016), with a fellowship from the Gulbenkian Foundation. I have been taking part in many non-academic trainings, namely meditation, yoga, butoh, contact-improvisation, real time composition (performance), improvisation theater, voice work, Louise Hay method and ecovillage design.
I am interested in the affectionate, collective, historical, political, ecological, spiritual and healing dimensions of the creative process
