Lis Costa

Lis Costa, born in Goiânia, Brazil in 1961.

She has always been keen on manual labour and creative works since little.

She attended Visual Arts at Federal University of Goiás (UFG) and then studied Architecture at UCG University the following year, where she graduated in 1985.

She worked as an architect and interior designer.

Lis moved to Bologna, Italy, in 1991.

She returned to art in recent years and was involved in cultural associations that allowed her to work creatively and to show her first works.

She started carving paper trying to recreate different shapes, exploring both organic and abstract shapes, playing with lights and shades with paper cuts to achieve a light and delicate result.
