As a new PHD researcher at the Fine Arts Faculty of Lisboa, I had to write 3 papers and decided to move to Dahab in Egypt to focus on writing on “Art and games decolonisation”. Being in Sinai, facing the red sea and the desert mountains, I did a series of large scale in situ paintings, painting on rocks, in front of the sea or in valleys. I had the chance to meet Alex Wielemans and Saki Wakita who play traditional Malian music and it was a real pleasure to paint in music.
