PIPA Prize 2022 nominee

Samantha Canovas is an artist, textile, writer, embroiderer and art educator. Master in Visual Poetics, USP, 2017 and Bachelor’s degree in Visual Arts from the University of Brasilia, 2013. 

She began her artistic trajectory researching the limits of the materiality of painting, seeking to deepen her practice through guiding questions, such as method, drift, obsession and idleness in contemporary art. The artist investigates the textile as a escultural field, as well as its relationship with clothing, still seeking to dilute the border between art and crafts and to think about the relationship between the domestic and the feminine.
