Vera Uberti was born in Brazil in 1964, today she lives and works between Italy and Brazil. Her experience has led her to collaborate with museums and cultural institutions, obtaining prestigious awards for her works and projects. Today she is an internationally renowned artist who over the last twenty years has focused her artistic research on the development of immersive projects, with the aim of making the viewer a participant and protagonist of the work itself.

The exhibitions designed by Vera Uberti are in fact born from the desire to touch the users’ state of mind and provoke strong emotions in them. Vera conceives the artistic language in total freedom and flexibility, playing with lights, words and objects, which become tools capable of transforming the landscape and the spectator, inviting him to feed on dreams and imagination.

Vera began her artistic career in 2001 by enrolling in the Visual Arts course of the Armando Alvares Penteado Foundation – FAAP in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Refletir was his first work awarded at the FAAP Annual Art Awards in 2003. He also won the Chamex Arte Jovem Award at the Tomie Ohtake Institute in 2004.
