The Portuguese artist born in 1986 develops a body of work which is essentially auto-biographical, reflecting on multiple current problems from philosophy, religion and politics. She proposes an hibridism which merges painting, literature, performance, sound, video and installation. She graduated in Visual Arts at ESAD School of Art and Design, Portugal, 2008. In that same year, she was awarded the BANIF REVELATION Prize. In 2010 she won a D.G. Art grant supported by the Portuguese Ministry of Culture for “PROJECT SKIN”. In 2016, she won the Young Creators Prize awarded by the National Cultural Center with a sculptural/prosthesis project TITHEMI. In 2016 she was one of the selected for the shortlist Paula Rego Award. In 2018 finished her Painting Master Degree in the School of Fine Arts, Lisbon University, with distinction. The research and MA thesis was based on her own art work and the concepts of skin, heteronym, bachelor machines and process. The artist also developed the project “CAVE” in which the studio was open to the public highlighting the rooms of each of the ten heteronyms.

In July 2019 Duvall won the Young European Prize promoted by Amadeo de Souza Cardoso Museum witch means her work will be touring around Europe for the next two years.
