Nayara Leite


www.nayaraleite.com

Nayara Leite (b. 1989) is a Brazilian visual artist based in Bergen, where she recently graduated from the MFA Programme at Bergen Art Academy. Ever since Nayara moved abroad, she has been making herself more present and actively involved with the Brazilian LGBTQ+ issues that are so close to her heart by producing a dark and often unbearable portrayal of the oppressive reality in which this community lives in her home country.

For the past 2 years, Nayara has been working on her ongoing project, Meus Caros Amigos. The project contains a letter correspondence with 10 close friends in Brazil, regarding the situation for the LGBTQ+ community since the election of the self-proclaimed homophobic president Jair Bolsonaro.
