Livia Fontana

Livia Fontana, visual artist, was born in Curitiba, 1979, city where she lives and works. Graduated in Publicity and Advertising in 2002 by Positivo University in Curitiba, with extension in Graphic Design and Photography at Central Saint Martins, London. Livia Sofia constructs her poetics based on conflicts or psychological solutions. With influence from the cinema and different printing techniques, what you see is the result of a process, where the images are constructed from experiences, flirting with irony and nostalgia. In its production, the great formats present themselves naturally, leaving explicit the intimate history of a human being. His photographs accompany him since he was 8 years old, the date of his first camera, his father’s gift. In March of 2015 he founded a contemporary art gallery in Curitiba, in Boiler.
