Born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Bella Amaral began her artistic career in dance, studying Classical Ballet for over 13 years. 

As a child she was fascinated with the aesthetics of the body and found a way to capture this in her artwork. Through the years she was able to combine both painting and movement through her street art murals. 

Bella is currently based in Porto, Portugal where she shares a studio with her husband Justin Phame. Together they are developing a new body of work combining their art.
