Diogo Pinheiro

Painting, Booth 316

Diogo Pinheiro was born in Lisbon, Portugal and currently lives in Brampton, ON. He graduated from OCAD University and received a BFA in Drawing and Painting. His work consists of urbanscapes that are geometrically simplified and colourful through oil paint on wood panels. Diogo’s works revolve around the idea that forms of "beauty" often go unnoticed. Beauty is conceptualised as balance and structure, shown through the simplification of geometric shapes and colour. Diogo uses urban locations as the focus for his works, such as alleyways and train stations, with the purpose of portraying areas that are often over looked or ignored due to the fast pace nature of urban environments.
