Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 1988.
Lives and works in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

PIPA Prize 2020 and 2021 nominee. 

Agrade Camíz started her relationship with creative activities writing, as a way of self-knowledge and of creating new realities. Since 2010, she began to develop graffitis, making murals and characters. She is a multimedia artist who incorporates in her works Rio de Janeiro’s popular architecture aesthetics mixing matters related to sexuality, beauty, feminine oppression. She incorporates grids [grades] in many works, which refer to impositions and behaviour patterns. She explores the spellings of the word grade [grid]; a grade [the grid], agrade [please], agradar [to please] and from the ambiguity of the meanings of agradar [to please] and limitar [to limit], the artist questions, in various directions, the behavioural impositions made up by the social setting/environment, which limit the possibilities of existence. The choice of black and white has always been in the scope of Camila’s work construction. The colors are being added through the meeting with other artistic experiences lived by the artist.
