Ciane Xavier

Placeholder
Ciane Xavier

Hometown: Brazil

Based in: Philippines

 

Originally from a small town in the countryside of southern Brazil, one of Ciane’s first passions was to explore the immense diversity of cultures around the globe during her career as an international fashion model. Since her teens she has lived in more than 14 different countries, which has shaped much of what she today calls as a process of identity loss and reconstruction of herself that is strongly reflected in her work.

Ciane’s first encounter with her inner artist started in the Philippines while painting the walls of her new apartment. As she describes, “My journey as an artist started when I was doodling on the walls of my living room. I doodle freely without any restrains, daydreaming about my life experiences and materializing personal emotions. I realized that my imagination had suddenly become part of this new reality, where my soul be the real artist and my hands were the bridge between two different worlds”. This was a turning point in her life when she decided to follow a childhood passion for drawing and to emerge herself into art.

Since then, she has taught herself to paint and sculpt, learning about different materials and integrating it into her work. Through Pop Culture Ciane explores the boundaries of today’s society, touching upon globalization and the distractions of the millennial era. The lonely and desolate characters serve as exploration of the human soul, symbolizing power, fragility and eternity but retaining a sense of vagueness to encourage a dialogue between the art and the viewer.
