The work of João MT establishes a connection between artistic practice and life practice. He takes everyday events and circumstances, reconfiguring them in new and unique ways. Colorful and playful or dark and obscure, his art provides us with a challenging insight of life.
“The clouds above us join and separate,
The breeze in the courtyard leaves and returns.
Life is like that, so why not relax?
Who can stop us from celebrating?”
— quote by Lu Yu
