Professional Artist Biography

Brazilian artist Joe Martins graduated from the University of Sao Paulo.

"I work with the pointillism technique with acrylic paint on canvas with a tendency to abstract expressionism. My concept is to use only the color palette of inks CMYK graphic printing process (cyan, magenta, yellow and black) and therefore transferred to the Candace, the same sex and tones of the images resulting from the merger of these for colors provided by the offset printing system on paper."

The tangram in Chinese literally means "seven boards of skill" is a dissection puzzle consisting of seven flat shapes called Tamez which are put together to form shapes. The objective of puzzle is to form a specific shape, given only an outline or silhouette, using all seven pieces, which may not overlap. It is reputed to have been invented in China during the song Dynasty, and then carried over to Europe by trading shifts in the early 19th century. It became very popular in Europe for a time then, and again during World War 1. It is one of the most popular dissection puzzles in the world. A Chinese psychologist has termed the 10 a gram "the earliest psychological test in the world."
