“I really enjoy the fact that I didn’t study art, I really wouldn’t change that.”
Jacqueline de Montaigne is a rapidly emerging Portuguese painter and muralist whose androgynous figures have burst onto the renowned and pioneering Portuguese street art scene in the last 2 years.
Jacqueline’s signature work is defiant and non-binary with delicate infusions of nature and ornithological elements. Whilst diluting paint to mimic classical watercolor techniques on extremely diverse surfaces, Jacqueline transforms traditional forms using a predominantly monochromatic pallet adorning her works with silver, bronze and gold leaf, be it a 300m2 street art mural, large canvas or a tiny scientific-grade painting.
This is Jacqueline’s side A. But it’s side B – her beliefs, values, upbringing and the artivist – that concocts the extraordinary human soul that lives in her, far beyond what one is able to grasp by merely looking at the surface.
THE ART OF
Who are the people who create remarkable things in their lives?

Each and every one of us is a visible side A, but also a hidden side B.
Join us in this journey of unveiling the two sides of the artists we stumble upon in our existence.
