Altro Mondo Arte Contemporanea is pleased to present the solo exhibition of artist and sculptor Niccolo Jose this coming February 12, 2015. In his exhibition Flow, Jose explores the peace and tranquility behind one of the most spiritual bodily experiences, a physical act that transcends the earthly world into a realm of meditation and enlightenment: yoga. By using a panoply of wood to illustrate the subtle curvature of a yogini’s form, Jose is able to bring forth an exceptional dialogue between an artist’s medium and a subject’s search for balance.

Niccolo Jose is a young Filipino visual artist known to craft organic sculptures, functional wooden accent art pieces, and studio contemporary furniture. Jose’s artworks are even made from all reclaimed and recycled wood. His works emphasize the soulful intimacy of Filipino craftsmanship. Each art piece has a soul of its own and is reflected through the positive emotions expressed by people upon seeing each work.

Born in the Philippines, his greatest influence was his father, who exposed Jose to the art and science of carpentry, design and construction. He earned a double degree in Environmental Studies and Studio Art in Lewis & Clark College (Portland, Oregon), where his artistic skills and knowledge also evolved from being involved in numerous stage productions and set designs. Niccolo left his mark in the United States by creating organic woven sculptures showcasing larger-than-life human figures chosen by the City of Portland that still currently reside in Washington Square Park.

Flow will be on view at Altro Mondo Arte Contemporanea (3rd Level, Greenbelt 5, Ayala Center, Makati City 1228 Philippines) until March 8, 2015.
