I’m Joao Arruda, plastic artist and musician. The Musicians collection brings my musical experiences in the form of drawings and digital paintings. Songs and styles that marked and are part of my personal repertoire.
I work with different techniques and media.
China ink, graphite, acrylic paint, enamel…
On the light table I create multiple versions of the same figure.
These drawings overlap in layers in Photoshop. With these layers I also use paints that interact with the drawings, creating vibration, movement in a riot of colors.
Affective memories are activated when we listen to music.
And that refers to my own experiences as a musician.June 8, 2022
