Daniela Paes Leão-Artist. Daniela Paes Leão is a Portuguese artist, currently living in the Netherlands. Leao works across film, photography, drawing, performance, print and new media, exploring and trying to get to the core of a present issue, often political or social. Her practice involves collaboration, working with communities and
across different disciplines such as sociology, anthropology and political sciences.
Leao says: “I work on series of drawings that visualise future possible worlds, that are desirable that we
want to be in but we’re not yet there. I decided to make a drawing where people are celebrating the end
of the fossil fuel age, they have flags, and those flags have elements from nature.”
She is part of Fossil Free Culture, a collective of artists, activists, researchers and critics working at the
intersection of art and climate activism.
