Iva Viana was born in Viana do Castelo, known as the city of plasterers, where her passion for sculpture took root and blossomed. Then she went to the Porto Faculty of Fine Arts and got a degree in Sculpture. Between 2003 and 2004, she specialised in ceramic, stone and multimedia technologies in Cracow, Poland. But her move to plaster came in 2007 when she went to work as a sculpture technician for an international company specialising in decorative plastering. Later, her internship in France with sculptor Pierre Merlin and an artistic exchange in Mozambique and in Brazil added an extra dimension to her desire to develop the traditional techniques of decorative sculpture. Since 2013, Iva has been exporting 100% manual plaster pieces from her studio in Viana do Castelo, using traditional sculpture techniques, whose creative liberty makes public and private spaces more beautiful.

Iva Viana nasceu na Cidade dos Estucadores, Viana do Castelo, onde a sua paixão pela escultura germinou e ganhou asas. Foi um salto até à Faculdade de Belas Artes do Porto onde se formou em Escultura. Entre 2003 e 2004 especializou-se em tecnologias de cerâmica, pedra e multimédia em Cracóvia, Polónia. Mas a passagem para o gesso aconteceu em 2007 quando vai trabalhar como técnica de escultura para uma empresa internacional especializada em gessos decorativos. Mais tarde, o estágio em França com o escultor Pierre Merlin e o intercâmbio artístico em Moçambique e no Brasil dão-lhe a dimensão do seu desejo de desenvolver as técnicas tradicionais de escultura decorativa. Desde 2013 que Iva, a partir do seu atelier em Viana do Castelo, já exporta para o mundo peças em gesso,100% manuais e com a técnica tradicional de escultura, cuja liberdade criativa deixa mais belos os espaços públicos e privados.
