Jotape
Artist

Growing up in Brazil, Jotape was always surrounded by rich colors, music and traditions. He uses all these elements and translate them into the canvas. He paints when he’s happy, when he’s sad, when he’s in love or heartbroken.

His paintings are pure reflections of his life journey, and although it comes through as figurative abstractions, the paintings represent things they are not visual, such as emotions, sound, or spirituals experiences. They are simplifications of reality, where details are eliminated from recognizable objects leaving only the essence of the feeling. The Artist’s intentions are to provoke emotion and make people feel as they are part of his journey.

Jotape is autodidact, and started paint four years ago. He has exhibiting his works in New York, Toronto, Miami, Aspen, Park City, Mexico City, London, Milan, Panama City, Santo Domingo, São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Monaco.

    Many photographers have experimented with the ‘Call & Response’ model of collaboration, where images function like links in a chain – a visual duel, or game of chess. This book, in which these two photographers pair up their photographs, feels more to me like a matching card game. Chiasm describes in biology the point at which two filamentous structures like a tendon or nerve diagonally intersect in an X (more…)

    Batniji’s disrupted images visualise both the current violence and historical repression imposed on Palestine through digitally degraded images of video calls with his family in Gaza. Palestinian artist Taysir Batniji’s diverse practice is often tinged with impermanence and fragility, drawing inspiration from his subjective experience and its relation to current events and history.

Maggie Lee’s passion for this medium of distribution was inspired by her work in copy stores, and above all by creating zines since her teenage years in New Jersey. There is a special appeal to the creative self-realisation in self-publishing (more…)
