Josepo, a self taught artist and welder, was born and raised in Santiago, Chile and moved to Miami in 1974. Since his arrival in Miami he has been involved in the construction industry working in different capacities in the residential and commercial aspects, which led him to start his own contracting company for the last 20 years.
During those years, Josepo observed different methods, shapes and technologies, which allowed him to develop a knack to create things and imagine these shapes and materials in different life and purpose by being incorporated to create something new.
For as long as he can remember, Josepo has enjoyed working with his hands where he would do some kind of creation that made sense to him, either by using colors, materials or shapes. What started as a hobby transformed into a passion. Through his artwork, Josepo communicates and expresses a feeling, a memory, an experience or simply provokes a reaction by the viewer through the interaction with the piece, causing the spectator to have their own interpretation.
