Jozza was born in 1958 in Hidrolandia, a small town located in central Brazil. Around 1996 after moving to Miami, Jozza met a famous Brazilian artist. During one of their conversations, this Brazilian artist invited Jozza to come work with him. Jozza was very excited to have the privilege to work and learn with a master. He worked with the artist for two years, and became his one and only student. (Due to copyright laws, we cannot mention the artist's name but you can probably figure it out if you are familiar with this style of art.)
In the year 2000 Jozza had his first exhibition, at Biscayne Tower I in downtown Miami. Jozza knows definition of style takes a long time; there are thousands of good artists out there working for years and years that haven’t got there yet. Many people believe that Jozza did so much during a short time; for 8 years he has been successful at the New York ArtExpo, one of the biggest art shows in the world, and in 2007 his work was completely sold out. Jozza’s work is being shown worldwide; you can even find it in the Hollywood movie, Transporter II directed by Louis Leterrier.
Jozza, along with Miami Dade County Public Schools established an educational project where the artist takes his artwork to the classrooms, This allows the students to participate directly in the painting. He does this as an attempt to teach art, and search for new talent. Jozza creates his vision with vibrant imagery and combinations of hard edged and abstract humans. His paintings are inspired by the simple streets of Brazil, all the way to the elegant Cities of the United States; cities full of rhythm, people, nightclubs, subways and restaurants where urban life subjects the spectrum of society class. The shimmering animated colors are captured in over 1,000 works around the world. Jozza’s work is included in numerous public and private collections in United States, Brazil, Spain, and Germany.
