About me

[This is my collage portfolio. For other kinds of projects, please visit: www.pira.berlin]

I'm a Brazilian art director, motion graphics artist & illustrator. Relocated from Rio to Berlin in July 2016 for a dive into new creative landscapes and entrepreneurial challenges while also exploring my heritage (i'm a german descendant). Always seeking to collaborate with other artists, entrepreneurs, collectives, NGO's, social innovation agencies, institutions and residencies.

Education, social innovation, entrepreneurship, spirituality, mythology, games, open knowledge and activism are a few topics from which I draw inspiration from. I'm very interested in the role design plays in all of those.
