Marcio Ribeiro, also known as PIA, is a painter and has his roots in street art. The artist, who has worked in the film industry as a set designer and art director, began his career as a visual artist in 2001. Since then, he has participated in several street art festivals, both individually and in collectives. His work is represented by galleries and has been commissioned by large commercial brands.
The poetics of PIA's work is created in a dialogue with contemporary art, through a comfortable flow perceived in his tireless strokes and minimal features. From transparency to density. Fragments of the artist's universe are expressed in his work by overlapping layers, portraying a soft mood amidst the over-stimulation of contemporary life.
