Ana Dias was born in Oporto in 1984.
Graduated in 2007 from the Escola Superior Artística do Porto (Oporto Superior School of Art), and went straight into teaching Serigraphy, Lithography and Engraving at this same institution.
Her background in plastic arts led Ana to photography, which came to be her favorite way of artistic expression.
The creation of colorful scenes, filled with playful and lively characters styled in glamorous fashion, are the key features that make Ana’s way of working unique.
Her style is very much influenced by the pop culture, and brings us back to the light eroticism of the 50’s pin-up girls… but the art she creates transcends the photographic image. It tells us a story that makes us smile, and that reminds us that beauty exists and is real.
Currently the artist works for several renowned brands in the field of photographic production, including PLAYBOY magazine, and her images have been increasingly noticed and acclaimed internationally in the circle of the visual arts.
