Born in 1983 in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, Renata Chebel is a visual artist working on digital and film photography, video, projections and installations. Her degree in journalism gave her a deep understanding of the inescapable subjectivity of reality, which permeates all of her work. After graduating from University of São Paulo, Brazil, she studied photography at Central Saint Martin's in London, United Kingdom. Going back to São Paulo, she worked as a freelance photographer and videomaker for numerous editorial and commercial projects, having one of her videos nominated for Best Music Video at the Brazilian VMA in 2011. In 2014, she participated in a video projection residency with Brooklyn Raga Massive, in New York, creating visuals for the weekly jam sessions by the artist collective. Recent group exhibitions of her photography and video work include Blood is in the Heart, at Narnia, New York (2014) and Territórios Imanentes, at Fauna Galeria, São Paulo (2015).
