Camila Pinheiro is a brazilian artist based in São Paulo.
“The appealing use of clean lines, negative space and tropical colours in Camila Pinheiro‘s distinctive illustrations hint at the Brazilian artist’s South American roots and high fashion background.
She began her career studying fashion in São Paulo, before landing a job with Dior and then as a “cool hunter” for a range of brands. It was during that stint that she realised she wanted to know more about the branding behind the luxury labels, and that’s when she decided to become a designer and illustrator. After a little more studying under her belt, she worked for various branding agencies for six years and then decided to launch her own studio.
Everything she produces has to have a narrative, a habit she developed in the marketing industry. Her influences range from Magritte, Matisse and Mondrian to Alexander Girard and Michael Roberts.”
