Cristiane is a self explorative textiles artist that uses the loom to weave narratives. Upcycling waste materials, she constructs a patchwork of lived experiences from the surrounding communities and her own immersion within it.
Born in Brazil and based between London and Lisbon, the artist’s interest in textiles started early through an extensive journey in fashion. Collaborating with Versace, Alexander McQueen, Hugo Boss and Ralph & Russo among others, she gained an aperture into the complex interplay between culture, art and performance.
Cristiane was awarded the scholarship from the Worshipful Company of Clothworkers to achieve her MA studies.
