Order, progress and tape art

Brazil is the new hotbed of tape artists…

We are amazed at the number of artists who have joined the tape art in recent years in Brazil … and that is something that excites us. It seemed that the tape art, yes!, it was born in the United States at the end of the 80s, but really where it has excelled has been in Europe and specifically in the Nordic countries and in Germany. But as it’s an easy art to love, it quickly spread to other countries in Europe such as Spain or Italy and other continents.

Brazil is proof of that. We already know the tape artist Marina Rodrigues, Marcos Behrens, Murilo Cenovicz or the duo Do all Tape (Jully and João) and today we present two women who want to join this list of friends of tape art in Brazil:
They are Thaís Bulhões and Que Fita:
Thaís resides in Recife and its name is “magadasfitas”. It has a fun, spontaneous, figurative and very unique style. We really like your work and your sympathy.

Que Fita has also ventured to start developing her art through tape art and with her social networks she helps us to make it known.


Congratulations to both of us and we welcome you and we want to know much more about you from now on … do not stop doing tape art and … of sharing it with us.
Long live the tape!

Hello to the guys of “Do all tape”

We have been behind these two Brazilian artists for a long time. They are “Do all tape” and we have cyber-sat with them to ask some questions and know little more better, of course in their facet of tape art.

We have already gone ahead some of its works in several publications but today Jully Anderson and João Paulo are the ones who tell us why they do tape art and what’s their philosophy.

To liven up the interview we will show you the works that they have selected for this post and we said goodbye with one of their last works in video format for a yoga space with music by Dennis Lloyd, Nevermid. All a success, like everything they do.

Congratulations guys. We are delighted to have you with us at TAPE ART SOCIETY and we will follow your steps very closely.

A greeting and long life to tape art !.

When was born your passion for the tape art?

@jullyanderson.art

In 2013 I decided to decorate the room of my apartment, so I decided to do some art since I designed since I was a kid, but I never had much affinity with paints. I went online to get decorating tips.
Navigating websites I found Tape Art and fell in love, I saw there a way to express my art without using conventional inks. I used my drawing techniques since the first art because I did not want geometric shapes.

@jppigosso.art

My passion for the tape was born in 2017, I had never seen Tape art had ever heard of it before. I met Jullyanderson (@ jullyanderson.art) and saw the incredible work he was doing and wanted to devote myself to it.

Who is your influenced?

@jullyanderson.art
A reference to me is the artist Buff Diss, I saw an art of him when I searched the Internet for Tape Art and I loved it.

@jppigosso.art

My reference in tape art is Jullyanderson, we have a similar style for drawings and when I saw in more detail how he made Tape art I fell in love with the tape.

How would you define your style?

@jullyanderson.art
My style is realistic, I try to get away from traditional geometric shapes. I like to see the surprise of people when they see my art, wondering if everything is done with ribbons.

@jppigosso.art

My style inside the tapeart is more realistic and minimalist, I seek to escape the traditional geometric forms.

Why opt for the tape rather than other kinds of materials?

@jullyanderson.art
I’ve never had a lot of ink affinity. I’ve been drawing since I was a child and have always tried to find myself in art. I fell in love with Tape art and saw that I would not need paints to give my creativity wings.

@jppigosso.art

The finish and the effect that the tape offers, without doubt, is what most strikes me in art. It’s hard to believe it’s made of tape, I’m always delighted when I see the work done

What is it best that offers you the tape art as art?

@jullyanderson.art

The charm and the beauty that the tape gives in each creation, the taped arts enchant my eyes, the details that you can do with the tape have always impressed me! 

@jppigosso.art

I chose to work with tape because I love the effect it causes in art, even though it is difficult to work due to glue, it is worth seeing the final result of the art. It’s nice to see perfection in the details that only the tape can do.

What do you think is the evolution of the tape art?

@jullyanderson.art
I think we are gaining more space, each artist with his technique, with his style. Tape art is winning the world.

@jppigosso.art

I think that Tape Art is evolving every day, gaining new fans and artists with different traits and cuts. I love the diversity of artists working with the same material and doing original art, following different styles.

 

What is your dream tape installation?

@jullyanderson.art
I dream of making great urban interventions here in my country, to show the greatest number of people this different art.

@jppigosso.art

My dream within Tape Art is to show to the greatest number of people what the tape is capable of doing, so I have a dream of making great art in some large cultural movement.
