Maite Montet

Maite is an artist who started painting as a hobby a decade ago. Her diverse background ( from French, Brazilian and Maroccan origin) has influenced her paintings. As a keen traveller, Maite gets her inspiration from different cultures and traditions. One of her favourite tradition to portrait is the Mexican celebration, ” El Dia des los Muertos”, the day of the dead. An ancient tradition represented by skulls and vibrant colour, to celebrate the life of the people and relatives that died; focusing on the gathering of family and friends that pray for, and remember their passed relatives. To her it represents “life”: the honouring of humanity in the flash and the embodiment of consciousness.
