Theo Pinto is a Brazilian artist and Art Director at the intersection of design and fine arts. He combines architecture and media to create immersive and interactive projects for public and cultural spaces.
Skyscapes is an exploration of the mysterious beauty of the natural phenomena of light when day meets night and sky meets earth. This body of work is a deep dive into how we experience the sky; not as an external image but as a shared moment. It is an invitation to contemplate how the sky is the common denominator bringing all people—from all times—closer together, both physically and cosmically. Through light and simplicity, the paintings evoke a stillness in the work, a hypnotizing desire to stare and contemplate into the depth of the colors, demanding quiet reflection. It is an invitation into internal peace and clarity, felt by those willing to be absorbed by its emptiness.

Pinto's signature "Drip Painting" aesthetic found in his diptych paintings explore the relationship between control and chaos, utilizing color and gravity as the primary subjects of his acrylic and resin on wood artwork.
For Art Basel, Miami Beach 2015, Revlon-owned, Sinful Colors commissioned Pinto to transform a brand new 2016 Mini Cooper Clubman S into a functional art piece. The car acted as a blank canvas to showcase the Spring/Summer 2016 Sinful Colors nail polish collection using his "Drip Painting." The performance art took place live at Wynwood Art Group Gallery in Miami's growing art district.
He is currently working on an installation for the 69th floor of the World Trade Center Tower 4 Gallery.
Pinto received his BFA from MICA, the Maryland Institute College of Art. His work is exhibited in galleries in the U.S. and abroad, and he currently maintains a studio in New York, NY where he resides.
