Ipsos Malafaya is a Portuguese female artist, based in the UK since 2006.
An obsessive illustrator since childhood, Ipsos trained at prestigious institutions in both Lisbon and London, graduating from Chelsea College of Art with a degree in Fine Art in 2012.As a classically trained hyper-realist artist, Ipsos faced a drastic, radical change after a trip to the Amazon jungle in 2015. During this trip, Ipsos had her first encounter with the powerful medicine of Ayahuasca and this experience was to cause an inner transformation that profoundly affected her understanding of reality and consequently altered her art forever.
Today Ipsos’ very colourful work often addresses themes around the many facets of the ego, the nature of reality and consciousness and psychedelic culture. She also draws a lot of inspiration from various spiritual practices such as Buddhism, Hinduism or Jewish mysticism.
