Inaugural Jozza Exhibit at the FPMC in 2011
The Foundation of Parks and Museums of Cozumel (FPMC) hosted the inaugural exhibit, “From Brazil to Cozumel”, by artist Jozza at a cultural and artist showing at the Museo de la Isla, visited by numerous art lovers.
Those in attendance included Eduardo Novelo Lopez, president of the FPMC, German Padilla, representative of the Quintana Roo government, Manuel Alcocer Angulo, director of Culture, and Isela Carrillo Cupul, director of the Museo de la Isla, among many other civil authorities.
The protagonist and star of the night, Jozza, was present to exhibit his creations, which reflect his passion for art, brought on by his mother, Maria, his principal source of inspiration, and also reflect the influence of artist Romero Britto.
The artist, born in Hidrolandia, Brazil in 1958, has exhibited his artwork in the United States, Spain, Germany, and his native home. This is the first time he has formally presented his creations in Mexico, having chosen the Museo de la Isla as a fitting locale for him to express and transmit his creativity.
Jozza received acknowledgment from Eduardo Novelo for bringing culture and art to the island of Cozumel. Those present admired the 20 pieces of art set up in the Sala de Temporales while artists Antonio Loranca, Abraham Rodiguez, and Raul Becerra added to the experience with music from bossa nova.
