PIPA 2021 nominee.

Thainan Castro, born in 1990 in Rio de Janeiro – Brazil, is a visual artist with a bachelor’s degree in Design from PUC-Rio. In addition to being a designer and illustrator, he investigates and depicts memory: the unfolding of his drawing process through a physical recovery after an accident that temporarily took away his movements; the search for ordinary moments and objects as he wanders around the city; places he passes by, and memories of other moments once lived. He seeks to rescue reminiscences in order to create a playful and nostalgic universe, worn out by time.
