BWOKAA

Bwokaa is a Barcelona-based Brazilian artist, chef and musician who has collaborated with Phil Manzanera to produce a truly special collection of images.

Born in 1975 in the Pampas lowlands of southern Brazil, Bwokaa studied industrial design in Santa Maria before moving to Sao Paulo and then to Lisbon, where he participated in multimedia and urban interference projects. In 2001 he moved to Barcelona and began working in a variety of media: sculpture, painting, serigraphy and also ceramics, for which he employed both Japanese and Western techniques to create a unique series of vases, plates, sculptures and paintings in mud.

He combined this artistic work with his other passion, the kitchen, and has worked alongside great chefs including Eduard Xatruch, Oriol Castro and Mateu Casañas.

Bwokaa has remained in Barcelona, but in recent years he has worked in a broad range of media producing several thematic series, including among others: EXECUTIVES, composed of an indeterminate number of watercolors that simplify the form and expression of man; and JAZZ, comprising large format portraits in acrylic on canvas, which muse on the mythical figures of Jazz.

It was one of the EXECUTIVES series that became the album cover for the first Corroncho album, by Phil Manzanera and Lucho Brieva, and that was soon followed by the Corroncho2 commission.
