Biography

Jeanine Brito (b. 1993, Germany) is a painter living and working in Toronto, Canada. Her work explores themes of memory and desire, imagined in a theatrical, surrealist context. Self-taught, her previous experience as a graphic designer informs her approach to colour and composition, where smooth, saturated surfaces meet photographic crops. Recent exhibitions include DISEMBODIED, curated by Ben Lee Ritchie Handler, Nicodim, New York (2023); So Softly and Sweetly, La Causa Galeria, Madrid (2022, solo); You Me Me You curated by Rachel Keller, Nicodim, Los Angeles (2022); and New Mythologies II, Huxley Parlour, London (2022).
