La Baraque



Rita Wainer was born in São Paulo in 1977. Illustrator, plastic artist, street artist and fashion designer; Rita is all of that and more. After years of working in fashion and parading her collections at SPFW and Fashion Rio, she decided to dedicate her life to painting.

In her art she plays with expressive features in a playful universe composed of bloody hearts, stars, flowers and sharks filled with emotive, loving girls and text combinations. She uses a female alter ego to claim current feminine roles. Her art touches on deep feelings and is straight forward about universal feminine questions.

Rita likes to create using mixed media; she puts her ideas on paper, plates, walls or any other platform that suits her creations. She uses the Internet intensely as a communication tool for the dissemination of her images and poetry through social networks. She lives and works in Rio de Janeiro since 2013.
