Brazilian born Adriana Carvalho received her BFA from the Faculdade de Artes Plasticas in Sao Paulo. Upon graduation, she moved to Chicago where she was first introduced to the welding process. Chicago’s extensive resources for recycled materials, world renowned architecture, iron structures and public art influenced her art making process, merging the spirituality of her native country, Brazil, with the industrial personality of Chicago.
Adriana presently lives and works in Miami Beach, an environment that has fostered her work and allowed it to become more adventurous by incorporating diverse, unexpected materials to communicate her ideas. She creates artwork out of passion and ideas from circumstances in daily life. The challenge for Adriana is working with harsh items as metal products, and delicately transforming them into an artwork that represents her dreams, fears and social commentary.
