Diogo Pinheiro was born in Lisbon, Portugal and currently lives in Brampton, ON. He graduated from OCAD University in 2015 and received a BFA in Drawing and Painting. Second year participating in TOAF and the receiver of the Honorable Mention Award for Painting at the 58th Toronto Outdoor Art Fair. His work consists of urbanscapes that are geometrically simplified and colourful through oil paint on wood panels. Diogo is inspired by artists such as Edward Hopper for his ability to create an urban environment that seems to have been frozen still in time.

Diogo’s works revolve around the idea that forms of "beauty" often go unnoticed. Beauty is conceptualized as balance and structure, shown through the simplification of geometric shapes and colour. Diogo uses urban locations as the focus for his works, such as alleyways and train stations, with the purpose of portraying areas that are often over looked or ignored due to the fast pace nature of urban environments.
