Jaider Esbell (Normandia, RR, 1979)

Esbell retakes his work with acrylic painting, in an autodidact manner. His literature and artworks, including poetry, photography and videos, have taken him to an avant-garde position in the state. Jaider is much more compromised with the sensitive meaning of his work than the economical return, and wants to take his culture to other parts of Brazil through art. Still, he has been carrying out activities as a cultural producer, art educator and lecturer in art, literature and environment management and sustainable development.
