These pages serve as a catalog of contemporary Brazilian art and can be updated by the artists at any time.

In this post, we present a few pages of the 64 names of PIPA 2021.

Hariel Revignet

My artistic researches are autobiogeographic and are manifested by intersections, between the social, the ancestral and the spiritual. Building images, activating possible memories, demarcating original territories in the collective unconscious, crumbling borders and burning herbs to heal colonial wounds. The dimensions of ancestral black feminism to activate the decolonial and counter-colonial, are crossed to establish a possible Afro-diasporic-indigenous place. Graduated in Architecture and Urbanism at UFG, I created the concept AXÉTETURA where I make the displacement of the Eurocentric-modern-capitalist epistemic impositions seeking my references of space, territory, place, culture, knowledge and oralizations from the Afro-centered worldview and the Indigenous Enchanting.

Kika Carvalho

I started my career in graffiti, being the first prominent woman to paint the walls of Vitória and one of those responsible for building the local scene, with works that can be found today in different cities across the country. Since 2016, my artistic practice has materialized in different supports, techniques, and scales, with deeper research on the color blue, an element that presents itself from the relationship with the island-city landscape to the spark for a closer look at the art history, in particular, the practice of painting.
