Eduardo Berliner studied graphic design in Brazil and obtained his Masters of Arts in Type design from the University of Reading, United Kingdom, in 2003.
Eduardo Berliner developed a course in typography for the Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro in 2004. Later on he worked as a lecturer in the same university.
Moreover, Berliner has created, with the artist Cadu, a graphic structure for a newspaper “museumuseu”, a project conceived by Brazilian artist Mabe Bethonico, exhibited in the 27th biennial of San Paolo. He has also worked in the fashion industry by designing motifs for various fashion clothing brands in Brazil.
Now Eduardo Berliner works as an artist and a professor in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Blurring reality and imagination, Berliner’s paintings are born out of his imagination, memory, and keen observation of his surroundings. He creates and re-creates scenes that strike him - a man holding a medical dummy while walking down the street at night, a wheelchair behind a potted plant - building models in his studio, which he imaginatively augments and alters, and then transforms into his surrealistic, suggestive paintings. For Berliner, painting is a means to connect and engage. He describes that painting helps him "establish a primordial relationship with the physicality of the world".
