Patrícia Noronha is a visual artist and has a PhD in Biology. Actually she has a post-Doc grant in artistic studies, from FCT, and uses a microbiology laboratory as na art studio at Instituto de Tecnologia Química e Biológica (ITQB), from Universidade Nova de Lisboa. She works with microbial pigments and biofilms as an artistic tool.

Biopaintings were obtained by controlling the growth of yeast cells on paper and ensuring the stability of the final results. The biopaintings result from the artist´s observation of the interactions between the cells and from the experimentation with their evolving patterns. The often unexpected results are part of the creative process and suggest new ways to be explored. The last image is a live installation at Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian (FCG), Lisbon 2009.
