PIPA Prize 2023 nominee

In her artistic practice, Larissa de Souza uses painting in different formats and languages. The central figure of her artistic representations is the image of the Afro-Brazilian woman in her private and collective universe, navigating between memory, body, desire and ancestry. In her production, the elements that stand out are collages of objects, fabrics, embroidery, resin frames, techniques with textures on painting, paintings with an abstract background and iconographies developed by the artist. Larissa is self-taught and her work is part of important collections, such as the Museu de Arte do Rio (MAR) and the Museu de Arte de São Paulo (MASP). Among group exhibitions and national and international art fairs, she held her first solo exhibition at HOA Tour Gallery, “Pertencimento’’ (2021 – São Paulo, Brazil), and her first international solo show at Albertz Benda Gallery, “Paredes que Contam Histórias’’ (2023 – New York, USA).
