JJ was born in Genoa, Italy, from Swiss father and Panamanian mother.
After studying Architecture and design in the faculty of Genoa, he moves to Milan, starting a career in film and advertising production.
This parallel film experience influences fundamentally his Art, making Photography and Post-Production the fundamental media of his work: he develops his own original technique that he baptizes “Photopaint”.
Photopaint consists in sampling many photos in the computer and integrate them in intricate compositions that exceed the hundred layers, giving as ultimate result the detailed photography of his
Some have compared it with DaVinci’s velature technique applied to the digital movement.
Trough photography and computer he explores and deconstructs reality for than playing at re-assembling It in new configurations, exploring its limits and possibilities.
JJR considers Art as a tool to explore the world in all its facets. Avid of experience, he believes in an extraordinary life to produce extraordinary work, therefore dedicating himself to travel, exploration, and interacting with all sorts of cultures and practices.
Since a decade now he has been living the digital nomad lifestyle.
For many years, JJ and his camera, come in close contact with different cultures and landscapes all over the world, in the pursuit of compiling the scattered pieces of the riddle that holds the secrets of human nature.
After 20 years of carreer as digital artist, he's now an avid advocate for the NFT cryptoart movement, and recently taking part in it trough platforms like Foundation and Rarible.
His work is divided in “collections”, each as the end result that crystallizes the stages of his global journey.
