Artists awarded in 2016:

Jaider Esbell

Amazon Makushi Indian. Esbell’s works further skews the chaos of human and non-human expressions. Forest forces and beings emanate from the art of the son of time, and of all the influences: ancestry, knowledge, memory, dialogues, contemporary plasticity, global politics, local beings, visual shamanism, power. Word, image, sound, silence – communication in all languages. Esbell’s art requires, beyond the senses, immersion.

Arissana Pataxó

Graduated in Fine Arts at the School of Fine Arts at UFBA- Federal University of Bahia (2009). Born in Porto Seguro from a Pataxó ethnicity. Develops her artistic production in various techniques by approaching the indigenous thematic as part of the contemporary world. Arissana had her first solo exhibition in 2007, Sob o olhar Pataxó at the Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology, UFBA, Salvador, Brazil. Since then, she has entered in the artistic world by participating in several exhibitions.
