Cela Luz works in a range of media: installation, painting, printmaking, drawing, sculpture, animation and urban interventions.
She is currently pursuing her MFA in Fine Arts at The School of Visual Arts in NY with graduation expected for 2017. Cela completed her BFA in Graphic Design in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
In 2014, she got worldwide attention by the press with her urban intervention work “The Kiss”. This was a draw depicting Brazil’s president Dilma Rousseff and rival candidate Marina Silva, kissing each other, wheatpaste in a street wall in Rio de Janeiro. The work was a response to homophobic comments during electoral debates and to the lack of political representation in favor of gay rights.
Still in 2014, two of her paintings were acquired for the Museum of Modern Art in Rio de Janeiro, Gilberto Chateaubriand Collection.
Her work has been shown throughout Brazil and abroad, including cities as São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and New York.
