Biography: Jozza was born in 1958 in Hidrolandia, a small town located in central Brazil.  His passion for art began when he was very young, and was inspired by his mother Maria who was an art teacher.  He grew up helping his father with his lumber storage; there he started to create wooden sculptures. In 1996, he relocated to Miami, Fl. with his wife Tatiana  He began to work in restaurants, and went to work at Pizza Via on Lincoln Rd. next door to Romero Britto Gallery; Britto used to go there for lunch. One day Jozza and Britto started a conversation and found out they were both from Brazil. They spoke on many occasions when Britto would come to eat; Britto got to know quite a bit about Jozza’s artistic abilities.  During one of their conversations, Britto invited Jozza to come work with him.  Jozza was very excited to have the privilege to work and learn with a master. He worked with Britto for two years, and he was the first and only Britto Student. He thanks Britto every day for all that he did for him during the two years he spent working with him; Britto is one of the nicest and most generous person he has ever met. In the year 2000 Jozza had his first exhibition, at Biscayne Tower I in downtown Miami, and he had a taste of what it was like to sell his first piece, and from that experience, he started to exhibit his artwork at different galleries. In recent years his work can be found in galleries and collections around the world.
