Mariana Leal is a calligrapher, painter and creative coder currently living in São Paulo, Brazil. In 2015, during the gestural warm-ups for her job in calligraphy for invitations, she fell in love for its free flowing forms and all the mobility of the body that it demands to be made. In 2019, she started to mix calligraphy and programming, creating what she calls a "hybrid calligraphy": half gestures made by human hand, half algorithms processed by a computer.
Today her artistic research consists on investigating the expressive possibilities of the calligraphic mobility in concrete and digital/algorithmical realms.
