Pauline Massimo

Pauline Massimo (they/them) is an interdisciplinary artist and educator from Brazil based in Barcelona, Spain. With more than 11 years of professional experience in the art field from painting, dance, performance art, photography, and Shibari to event curator, space holder, educator, community building, and art director in those few past years. They have been to a vast number of workshops and have equally experienced as a rope model, rigging, and self-tying. Pauline is educated and interested in the broader range that Shibari can provide as a practice, like classic Japanese style as more contemporary mixed styles, they are mostly interested in the mental and physical challenge that this practicum can offer as much as the challenge of creating experiences that adapt for different tastes and capabilities.
