Jemmiro (born Belmiro Antonio Jemusse on March 16, 1976) is an artist from Mozambique. He has transitioned into South Africa in 2003 to become a full-time artist and to escape what he describes as “limitations in Mozambique” art scene. He studied drawing, painting and print-making and has participated in a number of solo and group exhibitions.
I am inspired by daily questions and answers, human expressions and beauty; the unreliable world we live in; human life, humour, fantasies and dreams. I paint/ draw imaginary figures; some suggested, some realistic; I enjoy abstraction and placing this figures in evocative surreal atmospheres, which allows for primeval myths to surface; their humour and questions.
