In searching for English written information on the Brazilian photographer Ana Lira, we have accidentally found the remarkable work of another artist designer whose art also turns around sexuality.
Also named Ana Lira, she lives in Viana do Castelo in Portugal.
Ana Lira’s work of Ana combines iconographic images of Egon Schiele, Gustav Klimt’s, Art Deco geometrical forms, as well as technical and aesthetic solutions that recall Hannah Hoch. The originality and contemporary nature of Ana Lira’s work reside in the apparent contradiction of pursuing a proper and contemporary language to construct multiple pastiches.
