Paris-Based, Brazilian-American multimedia artist, author, academic, and public speaker. JÔNATAS’ works explore personal and collective identity amidst an ever-changing cultural landscape.
The artist’s exploration of identity is often drawn from his own family’s history of migration, adaptation, and cultural hybridization. JÔNATAS often makes use of pastiches of immigration documents, DNA exams, Inquisitional archives, and personal diaries for his 2D, Installation, and Time-Based works.
For the past 18 years JÔNATAS has been featured at biennials, museums, art galleries, and art auctions throughout the West.
JÔNATAS holds a Bachelors of Arts Degree in Latin American, Caribbean, and Iberian Studies from The University of Madison-Wisconsin, and a Master of Fine Arts Degree from Florida International University.
Dana Blickensderfer began her artistic career while working and living in New York City. She is also the founder of Provoke Art and the co-founder of iBoss Ventures, a Tech Startup Incubator Company. She has lived and worked in New York City and Florida.
Most recently, Dana opened the base of her artistic journey in St Petersburg (FL), where she continues to develop and create new paintings and drawings. Each canvas combines aspects of drawing, painting, collage and printmaking, all integrated.
Dana’s large scale canvases illustrate Blickensderfer’s ongoing interest in painting and mark-making while extending her personal lexicon to a wide range of references, including Egyptian art, Arabic symbolism and European modernist painting.
Dana becomes the bridge between the past and the present, the private and the public, the personal and the universal. In April 2016, her solo exhibition ‘Untitled’ held at the New York Art Expo, presented a distinctive series of 100 drawings questioning notions of identity and representation.
Alongside Dana’s studio work, Blickensderfer collaborated with New York based artist and filmmaker John Fuentes. It is through this collaboration that she developed her voice in video art and performance art.
