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?
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.
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?
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.
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?
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.
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?
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.
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?
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!
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?
I think we are gaining more space, each artist with his technique, with his style. Tape art is winning the world.
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?
I dream of making great urban interventions here in my country, to show the greatest number of people this different 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.
