Lia Chaia

Lia Chaia (São Paulo, 1978) lives and works in São Paulo.

She graduated from the Armando Álvares Penteado Foundation in Plastic Arts, in 2003.

In her work, she studies the daily life, culture vs. nature, tension vs. lightens, urban vs. rural. Her research also focuses on the body and its reactions to the ruptures and stimulus of the day-to-day.
