LUIZ PIVA: " TAKING A NAP IN THE PARK UNDER A TREE ON A SUNNY DAY, THAT BRINGS MEMORIES OF MY CHILDHOOD…"
22nd June 2014
Who is Luiz Piva?
For the moment, another ambitious Brazilian model who just moved from London to NY, with an ambiguous look, undefined accent and have been told I have a sarcastic sense of humor.
What did you do before modeling?
When I finished high school I went to live by the beach in Santa Catarina, south of Brazil, just to change the atmosphere of the crazy Sao Paulo, I thought I would probably stay there and study something, that didn't last for too long…after a couple of months I realised how much I missed the crazyness of a big city, I missed people, the facilities and even the noise. Meanwhile I met this fashion photographer who advised me to find a modelling agency. I did that when I went back to Sao Paulo, and got approved by the main ones at the time. But I did't like to stay still, so I got a part-time job in some "cool" clubs for a while, but wasn't happy yet. I felt I had to make a big move, something new…then I dropped my agency in Brazil and on the same week I bought my ticket to London, only told my family 3..4 days before…my friends got to know only 2 weeks after I was living in London, I lived there for 4 years until I move to NY.
Your personal passion or hidden talents?
Personal passion: I've always been moving around…so traveling definitely is one of my passions. But i have many, another one is taking a nap in the park under a tree on a sunny day, that brings memories of my childhood…
Hidden talents: Sometimes I can read people, can cook and draw as well...
Ten years from now (you will be…)?
I always ask myself the same thing, but you can't really tell…life is always changing, you never know where it could take you to. I am just enjoying the journey for now!
Knowledge - 'cos nobody has ever achieved 100% of it. And nobody will, 'cos there is always something new to discover.
What’s no fun?
A smelly cat, not having coffee in the morning and lack of respect to others.
Coffee after 7pm.
Current 'eye candy'?
A good laugh.
A quote that sums you up:
“One day i'll be at the place i always wanted to be..."
