​​Rosario Rebello de Andrade is a Portuguese artist who divides her time between Germany and Portugal. Rather than seing herself as a conceptual artist, her work has somehow a conceptual background.​ She organises it as "groups" that connect with each other in various ways. 

Literature and poetry play a very important role. She is interested in language and how the relationship between image and language is given to the viewer.

Since the past 10 years she works mostly on paper, foldable or not, as well as on miniatures, like paintings on copper, wood or photos. Her works reflect a concept of «mapping»: wether using places of the globe — and other ones — as metaphors that enable philosophical meaning that tends to a "non-place" significance; in other words, like poems that transcend the visual image. On the other hand, her "landscapes" are "other" and far removed from traditional ones. 

She centers her interest mostly in the tradition of art history. While her studies primarily concentrated on painting, she also uses mixed media, video and installation, depending on the need of each project. She has also presented over the years an obvious intention to approach the different projects with considerable formal differences, attributing great importance to the quality/placticity of the work being recognizable.
