Summary note
"The book is an account of how artist J. Cunha (Itapagipe, Baixa, 1948) appropriates several affective territories of the Indian and African deities, baiano modernism, the hinterland, the tropicalismo. In a universe populated by Kiriri Indians (his ancestors on his mother side), caboclos, orixás, gypsies, queens and kings, Cunha uses traditional and contemporary devices as a creator without limits. "In the 1990's, J. Cunha painted "Códice" which sums up the art, a masterwork that contains a reading of his entire repertoire, which was recreated in 2014, in the monumental railings for the national Museum of Afro-Brazilian Culture (MUNCAB), a landmark in the historic center of Salvador"--Page 8.
