Porto Alegre, Brazil, 1993.
Lives and works in Salvador, Brazil.

PIPA Prize 2022 nominee.

laryssa machada is a visual artist, photographer and filmmaker. Born in Porto Alegre – RS, Brazil  (1993), currently living in Salvador – BA, she builds images as rituals of decolonization and new narratives of present/future. She studied journalism, social science and arts – and learned a little more from the beautiful cadence of the samba. Her works discuss the construction of an image about LGBT’s, native people, Afro-Brazilian culture – walking through “Brazilian deinvasion” as a practice of visual education.
