Meet the Artist

Jeanine Brito


Jeanine Brito (b. 1993, Germany) is a painter living in Toronto, Canada, where she received her B.Des in Fashion Communication from Toronto Metropolitan University in 2015. In 2014 she studied at the Amsterdam Fashion Institute, completing a minor in independent fashion magazines. Her design education informs the use of colour and composition in her paintings, where she explores themes of memory and desire through self-portraiture and still life. Her work has been exhibited by galleries such as Prior Art Space in Berlin and Eve Leibe Gallery in London, and is collected internationally.
