DATE OF BIRTH
Luciano Pinheiro was born in Bertioga, north coast of São Paulo, son of fisherman and artisan. He developed in his repertoire, his roots and his fascination for the natural, for manual and handcrafted artistic techniques, true and authentic, for the experience and courses carried out along his route. Luciano Pinheiro considers as important elements of his creations: people, the environment, the cultural, social and environmental values,
The artist went through other areas, which today complements his artistic universe. He has a degree in pharmacy, chemistry and cinema. And fashion emerged about 12 years ago in Luciano's life, precisely because of his interest in creating, a referential heritage of handicrafts made by his mother, and the infinite possibilities of extrapolating art and questions in his creations.
Based on his references, the artist develops his art with natural peppers, textiles, wefts and natural inputs. Luciano's pieces bring with them the tropicalism, the questioning of social and environmental problems, rescuing the traditions and characteristics of local art. The artist had one of his textile collections awarded at the Museu da Casa Brasileira Award, the main category award in Brazil, and the Objeto Brasil award.
Currently, he is doing a master's degree in textile fibers, at Universidade São Paulo, researching new sustainable textile materials and offers inputs with less impact. Luciano Pinheiro created the project “Mulheres caiçaras”, in which he develops research of handcrafted techniques from different groups of artisans in Brazil,
