Cristiane de Oliveira
Cristiane de Oliveira was born during the colorful Brazilian Carnival of 1985. Her parents, enthusiastic travelers, started taking her and her sister to see the world at a very early age. Since then Cristiane has also got the travel bug, seen countless places and lived in multiple countries. That has helped her become a diverse artist and also the citizen of the world that she likes to be.
With an Honours Bachelor's Degree in Mass Communication, Cristiane has large experience in photography, cinema and advertising. Her passion for photography started with her fascination for cameras, especially for her dad’s SLR gear, which utilized film at that time. She used to ask her dad to “take just one picture” and be delighted with the allowance to hold “such a heavy camera” and see the world through those magic lenses. Today, Cristiane looks at the world searching for colors, formats, expressions, contemplating a wonderful sunset, and registering everything framed. She runs a company called O2 Pics which has a wide field of activity, from events and fashion to advertising.
In her new collection, Through the Window, Cristiane displays colorful pictures from around the world in window frames, giving it a very unique look and perspective. The exhibit runs from March 1st to 31st at:
