Gloria de Oliveira is a German-Brazilian multidisciplinary visual artist, musician and actor, currently based in Paris.
She has been writing and performing music since childhood, aspiring to become an opera singer - through a twist of fate she ended up studying drama in London at LAMDA instead and has since been working as an actor for the stage, film and radio.
Gloria also writes, directs and edits her own audiovisual narratives and is currently studying Fine Art at HFBK Hamburg and ENSBA Paris. She was selected as participant in the Berlinale Talent Campus at the 63rd Berlin International Film Festival.
In 2017, it was time for her to return to her roots and she started to release music under the project name lovespells
, culminating in the 5-track EP LUA AZUL
("blue moon" in her native Portuguese), a Dark Wave/Synth Pop confection.
In the spring of 2018, Gloria won the KRACH + GETOESE
prize, Hamburg’s award and support programme
for up-and-coming musicians. Since then, she has been working at Clouds Hill Recordings in Hamburg on the tracks for her self-produced debut album titled AN ANGEL FOR SATAN,
to be released in early 2019.
