Tell us a little about yourself…
My name is Adolpho Job, born in Riachão do Jacuípe/BA and resident in Feira de Santana, I graduated in social communication with a specialization in advertising and advertising that led me to the path of art from my involvement with graphic design.
I love cooking, photograph, go to the beach and observe nature, it's my hobbies that help to clear my thoughts and remember that I'm living in the present, letting the anguish speak lower inside the head.

My biggest inspiration for the works is nature, from the plants in the garden to the complexity of the human being.

Of course, all this is mixed with the imagery that my inner child gives me as a gift in all creations..

The CAPSULE series, composed of 8 works I did as my crossing into the professional art world still impresses me.

What are the challenges of art / artist in the current scenario?
Being artist not brazil is to face barriers often, the lack of support and encouragement puts a brake on our dreams that could be better used based on better political, educational and cultural conditions. But even being an independent artist today, I keep working with my work slowly, because I know that the little I do can be an impact on someone else's life.
Social networks have helped you to spread your work?
I've been publishing my work on social media and the support of other people is very nice, it is even an incentive to receive positive messages about a work I did without many pretensions. I believe that being online is one of the steps to be seen nowadays, but does not replace the network with other people outside the virtual. Integration can bring good results and lessens the burden of having to build based on algorithms.
How plastic arts can contribute to education and culture?
Art stirs the imagination, it is a moment of individual contemplation, each person has their repertoire and sufficient background to interpret a given work and this possibility makes art a great educational tool. Culture is a living process, that pulsates between each human being and it is up to us to manifest its expansion.
What are the criteria for stipulating the value of a work of art?
How to determine the value of a work of art is one of the big questions for new artists, I am still in a process of transition and better perception of my value. But I think a good way to price is to look at your production time X revenue X technical qualities, taking into account the variables of work. That way you can keep a fair price for you to maintain yourself and live with your art.

Don't let mistakes speak louder than successes, life is made of this continuous flow, let's dance with life instead of wanting to dominate the time of each stage. Enjoy the process, Live the present, rest, be organized and divide the steps in the way that is most comfortable for you.
If you want to leave a message ...
My final message is an invitation to readers who put off starting something, think about that something divided into small tasks. write down: what do you need to start?; what can be done after the start?; and what I leave for last?. That way our brain interprets the steps better, seeing small hills instead of a big mountain.
