Vini Naso, (b.1981, Rio de Janeiro, Brazi) currently resides and works in Toronto, Canada. 
Known for his hyperrealistic digital portraits, Naso’s work stands at the intersection of tradition and innovation both in content and form.  Working purely in the digital medium, Naso’s approach harmoniously incorporates bespoke procedural materials and AI collaboration, resulting in artworks rich in detail, including folk-inspired motifs, crafted textiles, jewelry and natural elements. His profound intuition for blending influences from past eras and the pulse of the modern world provides a portal in which timeless mythology and contemporary aesthetics unite.  
Naso delves into the human collective unconscious through his masked portraits, critically examining the role of contemporary media in shaping notions of identity and beauty. His artworks offer a unique representation of modern archetypes, portraying the evolving identities within the human psyche. This artistic endeavour stands as a profound commentary on the transformative power of media and technology, challenging and redefining our understanding of self and society.
Naso's artwork has gained international recognition, and featured in a variety of group exhibitions around the world. Notable exhibitions include "Decade of Ocean" at CCBB in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (2024); "Beyond Digital" at Venus Over Manhattan Gallery in New York (2023); "Crypto Art Fair" at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, Abu Dhabi, UAE (2022); and "NFT Digital Art Exhibition" at Art Innovation Gallery in Milan, Italy (2022), among others. His pieces have been acquired by distinguished private collectors, such as Pablo Rodríguez-Fraile and Desiree Casoni (RFC Art Collection), Daniel Maegaard (Seedphrase), Amir Soleymani (Mondoir Gallery), Rudy Adler (Founder of Wealth Simple), PJ. Curly (The Curly Collection), and the Kanosei Collection. This widespread acclaim underscores Naso's significant role in the contemporary digital and NFT art landscapes.
