Lives and works in Boa Vista, Roraima, Brazil
Jaider Esbell brings the worldview, mythical narratives, and the everyday life of his people in the Amazons in order to compose the poetics of his work, which unfolds in drawings, paintings, videos,
performances, and texts. Defining his artistic propositions as artivism, his research combines intersectional discussions between art, ancestry, spirituality, memory, politics, and ecology. His elaborations on Txaísmo— the way of weaving relationships of affinity in intercultural circuits of art marked by Indigenous protagonism — stand out.
