After my second daughter's birth, I decided to leave my old job. “Decided” is a big word, I was having a crisis, and I couldn't pretend anymore I was okay or getting better.


During this year of seclusion, I have lived intensely the joys and the solitary sufferings of being a stay-at-home mom...


I would take advantage of my rare breaks from the biggest (unpaid) job of my life (that is, taking care of two little beings full of energy) to draw. The themes? Without a particular desire to make a statement, I drew female bodies, female skin, female fat, hair and folds, alien heads and headless women... it was my daily meditation to find the resources, and the multiple gazes towards my condition: that of being a woman, a migrant, mother of two daughters growing up in a society far from being egalitarian.


I have met other people during this journey, who were also questioning their lives and society. And the desire to share has only grown.


So...


Desirenhos (mix of desire, drawing in Brazilian) is born.


Desirenhos are illustrations materialized by various techniques: screen printing, riso printing, digital printing, sewing, linocut ...


The goal is to create everyday objects full of humor, poetry and feminist revolt ;-)


Benvindos !



Desirenhos was created by Raquel Santana de Morais, autistic artist, mom of Coralina and Amalia, born in the state of Sao Paulo (Brazil), living, struggling, and working in Brussels :-)

It is magical: to walk around the Marolles (a unique neighborhood in Brussels), and observe the flea market without a specific goal ... you can always find little treasures, specially clothes. I love the process of looking at them, repairing the defaults, printing ... such a nice feeling of giving them a new life and being part of their history.
