Maria Imaginario

“Maria Imaginário says she’s from from Lisbon, even though she’s a child of the suburbs.
She might think she’s a painter at times, others an illustrator. Dividing her attention between walls and paper. Now fully dedicated to her loving dream: letting people see what’s inside Maria’s head.
After some collective exhibitions in Portugal and around the globe she is proud to present her second solo show, O Coraçãozinho de Merda.”


“This is a portrait of the little Little Shitty Heart (Coraçãozinho de Merda) that lives inside each and every one of us.
Who hasn’t felt like shit for the sake of love? Who hasn’t been hurt by this throbbing organ sealed in his rib cage?

It is what it is, this Little Shitty Heart. Melancholic and gullible but always a hopeful dreamer, opposing this cruel and indifferent world. Suffering because it feels, because it takes the biggest and meanest beatings. What else can we say? Well, we can say that all these little hearts turn to a disgusting mush when we suffer. But they don’t really know how to be any other way. Should they be blamed for that? We all love them anyway. But this heart is special, it doesn’t matter how many scars have burned its skin, it’ll get up sore and put its fists up high.

Welcome to this symbol of persistance.

This Little Shitty Heart, the purest of hearts.”
