Quinha Faria (b. Campinas, Brazil, 1988) is an artist based in Philadelphia, PA.

Largely informed by her role as an ER nurse, her work examines the shape and care of human bodies.  Quinha uses traditional tailoring techniques that she learned as a student of Larnell Baldwin  to create various types of bags, boxes, garments, and cases. These “packages” are deliberate artifacts of an era marked by disposability. 

In 2018, Faria founded the Philadelphia Packaging Company- a creative collective of nine friends who invite wide participation with projects that generate “offline connectivity” and interdependence within their communities. Together, they assemble ideas into meaningful objects.

Quinha will pursue her MFA at Bard in summer 2021.
