Joao Amado


The work Rising Waters seeks to expose the rise of sea waters due to the melting of glacial areas, and its main objective is to warn of a possible civilizational disappearance if man does not change his patterns and his ecological footprint. There is resistance in closing one’s eyes to all evidence of climate change. Here, the silence in the chaos comes from our posture immobile in the face of the undeniable advance of chaos. We walk in silence towards the chaos that is sitting in front of us. Born in São Miguel, Azores, João Amado (1992) is a self-taught visual artist who uses collage technique to compose the visual and conceptual structure of his work. He approaches themes that explore the sense of spirituality and the relationship of man with the world.
