Joao Machado, "Swimming," Map collage/mixed media
An emerging artist rising to the international scene, Brazilian artist,
Joao Machado engages in a daunting series of exhaustive,
nearly-obsessive collage works using snippets of maps from different
part of the world to create subjects that are Symbolist bent, filled
with psychedelia, humorous narratives, irony, and wit. This impressive
work on paper is a 35.4 x 51.2 map collage, "Swimming."
