Karina Pioner was born in 1982, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. At the age of 6 she moved to London, England, with her family, where she stayed for the next three years. At 12, her family went to live in Hamburg, Germany, and later Frankfurt, where they remained for six years.
I had the pleasure of knowing Karina during her six years in Frankfurt, the place where I also lived from the age of 10 to 17. Apart from teaching me about important bands such as The Doors and the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Karina was an all round wicked person. Little did I know that her art career would take off the way it has, exhibiting her work across Europe in France, Spain, Belgium, Scotland, Sweden, Turkey and Germany. Below are a few of my favorite pieces.
