Jofroi Amaral

My studio is my ship.

What I do in one sentence: I take decisions about colors, forms and experiences.

Why I didn’t get a proper job: Well, I have a proper job.

An artwork I dream of and I would get accomplished if space, time and money were abundant: painting with a living lion… with blue color… on an undefined form.

Artists, I have on my watch list (and why): Kenneth Noland, Ugo Rondinone, Franz Kline, Alexander Calder, Clifford Still, Peter Halley, Daniel Buren, Evan Holloway, Joan Miro, Andy Warhol, Mark Rothko, Roy Lichtenstein, Claude Monet, Josef Albers, Keith Haring, John Armleder, Sol LeWitt, Robert Mangold, Dan Flavin, Frank Stella, Jean Dubuffet, Yves Klein, Ellsworth Kelly, Gabriel Orozco, Jasper Johns, Math Bass, Christopher Wool, Saul Steinberg, Louis Morris, Aaron Curry, Adolph Gotlib, Tom Wesselmann, John Giorno, Michael Heizer, Ann Veronica Janssens, Pierre Huyghe, Carl Andre, Mary Weatherford, John Baldessari, Pierre Soulage, etc, …

I am afraid of: Give me time to think about.

How I want to be buried resp. words I want to be written on my tombstone: Jofroi Amaral / 1977–NOW
