Bia Leite

(this page was last updated in July 2019)

Fortaleza, Brazil, 1990.
Lives and works between Brasília and Fortaleza, Brazil.

PIPA 2019 nominee.

With a bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts by the Universidade de Brasília, Bia Leite focuses her studies on painting, engraving, drawing and cinema. Her collages are what guide her creative process, addressing subjects such as violence, conflict, daily life, love, questions about gender and sexuality and the strength of the TLGBQI+ family. Music shows up in her works as the soundtrack of metaphorical fictional images. It may be surprising to see her painting series including movie names, music albums, blogs and memes of Ceará’s drag queen reality show. Links between composition texts and acclaimed pop culture images.
