BIOGRAPHY

Born in Sanfins (PT) in 1993, Bruno Oliveira grew up in Luxembourg, where he is currently based.

Bruno Oliveira's origins, travels and cultural background are the foundation of his artistic work.
In 2015, after quitting his job as an educator, he started studying visual arts at ENSAV La Cambre in Brussels, from which he graduated with a Master degree in 2020.

Through photography and inspired by documentary, Bruno seeks to visualize real life stories in a poetic way. His work often focuses on stories about specific communities, migration and travels. The young visual artist attempts to capture places and people which he finds intriguing in order to keep a memory of them.
