Kleber Cianni was born in Brasilia, the capital of Brazil, in 1978. Citizen of the world, he lived in Bali, California, Hawaii, Australia, Berlin, always close to the sea and good surfing waves. He has a studio in Florianópolis, Brazil, where he spends part of the year.
I like to observe and collect objects that are discarded because they awaken in me creativity and imagination, causing a deep reflection on what community lives there, what it consumes, what it cares for, from the garbage it produces.
I offer myself as an instrument for the transformation and reframing of this material that is no longer useful, a channel to relive and tell its story, through my art.
That's how I communicate with the world, with my own dialect that I call "Kleberês", my way of talking about the things that disturb or enchant me.
I don't really understand the universe of words or numbers, that's why I use my art - language to access a space without time, where I can play whatever I want, without barriers or borders. In this place I feel in the body the light present in everything, in everyone, a dip in nothing. A living inspiration in some part of the universe decides to be born right here, in me. Right now I'm a brush, color, art and artist, all together making room for the idea to take shape. I dance the emotion of those who know nothing, just feel. Focused on the process, I let my body free to tell the images of the ancestral stories that come as breaths in my ears.
Here I exist - I belong - I am art.
